Master of Science in Education

Johns Hopkins is committed to supporting career-long development for educators. The Master of Science (MS) in Education degree is designed for educators who desire to enhance their professional knowledge and skills and to develop new areas of specialization.

This program requires 33 to 39 credits, depending on the concentration. With the approval of the program adviser, a student may transfer a maximum of six graduate credits from an accredited college or university, if the course is directly applicable to the student's degree requirements.

MS in Education concentrations are offered in School Administration and Supervision, Reading, Technology for Educators, Gifted Education, and Educational Studies (including both Individualized Interdisciplinary Program of Study and Independent Schools options). Some of these concentrations are offered as cohort partnerships, while additional options are available as on-campus degree programs.

Each concentration in this degree program aligns closely with regional and national standards and emphasizes performance assessment, career-long professional development, the needs of diverse learners, school improvement, and the role of educators as change agents.
