Master of Arts in Teaching for Experienced Teachers

General

Program Description

Coursework for the Master of Arts in Teaching for Experienced Teachers includes professional education courses, advanced content coursework, and a capstone or principal practicum. Our dedicated faculty offer experienced teachers an exceptional amount of personal contact, coaching, and support through this academic program. Each candidate is offered a unique experience rich in quality, dynamic in pedagogical practice and strong in instructional leadership.

Throughout the course of study, candidates are encouraged to explore and reflect on previous experiences and bridge new understandings from course offerings into future practice.

The program is purposefully designed to meet the evolving professional needs of experienced teachers as they hone their craft through rigorous study in professional education courses that culminate with a capstone showcasing an important issue in their professional career.

The Rice University Master of Arts in Teaching for experienced teachers offers two different options for educators to choose from:
