Education - Master
The Master of Education with a concentration in Critical Thinking is designed to improve classroom practices of teachers enrolled in the program. Strong emphasis is placed on understanding the theoretical underpinnings of critical thinking from a philosophical, historical, social and political perspective, and a consideration of the implications for classroom practice. The concept of critical thinking is used as a focal point for an analysis of schooling in America, the relationship between the schools and the broader social system, and the theoretical basis for pedagogical decisions.
The Master of Education with a concentration in Philosophy for Children is designed for candidates who have a liberal arts degree or its equivalent with a background in philosophy. In view of the growing awareness of the importance of reasoning to the educational process, and in view of the high regard in which the philosophy for children program has come to be held by educators internationally, proficiency in teaching children philosophy, as attested by this degree, will strongly recommend such individuals to elementary and secondary schools seeking teachers with proficiency in improving students' cognitive skills.
