Program Description:

In Goddard’s Master of Arts in Education, you choose your topic of inquiry and design a program of study based on how you learn best and what your study can contribute most to you and your community. Goddard invites you to think about your topic by drawing in other pertinent fields of study, which in turn allows you to see a wider view of the practices and theories inherent in your topic of study. Such a view enables you to create a more holistic thesis project, and enables you to learn more in the process about your life, your challenges and your gifts.

The Master of Arts in Education offers study options in these areas:

  • Teacher Licensure
  • Self-Designed Degree
  • Bilingual Education Endorsement
  • Community Education
  • Dual-Language/Early Childhood Education
  • School Counseling Endorsement
  • Graduate Studies for non-degree-seeking students


The Master of Arts in Education is offered in Goddard’s unique low-residency model, which removes the barriers between living your life and learning. In our low-residency model, each semester begins with an eight-day residency in either Plainfield, Vermont or Seattle, Washington.  Following the residency, there are 16 weeks of independent work and self-reflection in close collaboration with a faculty advisor and course mentors.
