About the Education Program

The education program at Brandeis has two missions: preparing reflective teachers who excel in the classroom and examining the institution of education. The Education Program offers two tracks:

Education Studies Program

Ed Studies Education Studies is designed for students interested in the social, historical, and cultural contexts of education. It enables students to investigate educational history and policy and the place of schooling in families and society from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

Teacher Education Program

Teacher Ed The Teacher Education minor leads to initial licensure at the preschool, elementary or secondary school level. It includes the study of children and youth, school and society, and subject-specific pedagogy. Coursework on campus is integrated with field experience in area schools, culminating in a semester of supervised student teaching.

Ten Semester BA/BS MAT Program

BA-MAT The Ten Semester BA/BS-MAT Program is designed for students who are entering their senior year and are interested in earning a Master of Arts in Teaching degree and a teaching license.
