Program Description:

Today's secondary classroom teachers need to prepare themselves and their students for the challenges of the future. These teachers encourage academic excellence, foster creativity, guide student development, and help students apply classroom knowledge to enrich their lives. In addition, they must have the ability to teach multicultural and multilingual students effectively while valuing cultural diversity. The George Washington University's Master's program in Secondary Education prepares you to meet these demands by providing graduate level experience through which you develop the skills and acquire the concepts essential for effective teaching. The George Washington University's (GW) Graduate School of Education and Human Development (GSEHD) is a nationally recognized leader in preparing students for careers in teaching. In the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy (C&P), graduate students obtain a Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree, which includes certification requirements for teaching English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Computer Science, Special Education, English as a Second Language (ESL), Foreign Languages, or potential for dual licensure.
