You’re a teacher. How can you work with colleagues to strengthen teaching and learning for students and adults?

If you are already an experienced educator, consider becoming a leader in your institution through our Teacher Leadership Program.

At Brandeis, we believe teachers, teacher leaders and education advocates can — and should — make a world of difference. 

Our Programs

Education Studies

This program offers both a major and a minor for undergraduates who are interested in education itself as well as in education-related fields.

Teacher Education

This program prepares you to make a difference in today's diverse classrooms. As an undergraduate at Brandeis, you may pursue a minor in teacher education — a pathway to licensure in public schools.

 The Teacher Education Minor is currently in a period of transition.  The Brandeis graduating classes of 2024, 2025, and 2026 will have the opportunity to pursue teacher licensure at Brandeis as undergraduates, though not as BA/MATs or MATs.  Decisions have not yet been made about the future of a pathway to teacher licensure at Brandeis after June 2026.

Teacher Leadership

If you are an experienced elementary or secondary teacher who wants to make a difference in your school and your community by collaborating with fellow teachers and administrators to strengthen instruction and school culture, the Brandeis Teacher Leadership Program will give you the knowledge and skills you need. We offer Advanced Graduate Study and Master of Education tracks.
