What to Expect


Our program objectives converge around three compelling expectations.

  1. First, candidates will be prepared to demonstrate expertise in content, curriculum, pedagogy, assessment, and technology to enhance student engagement and learning, including strategies to support students in processing emotions and managing attitudes and opinions.
  2. Second, candidates will be prepared to serve as models for social justice and advocates for inclusivity and equity. This includes developing asset-oriented mindsets to reach all learners and applying culturally sustaining pedagogies.
  3. Third, candidates will be prepared to recognize the importance of continuous learning informed by evidence from research, practice, and reflection, and further, to enact healthful professional practices and engage various stakeholders in a student’s life to provide collaborative, holistic, personalized support.  

The program will be delivered following a cohort model, starting in the summer semester and spanning a full year through the following summer (four semesters in total).


Candidates will complete a year-long internship in partnership school sites, with coaching and mentoring support.


While the program meets the certification requirements for Maryland, the School of Education cannot guarantee that the coursework will meet state credentialing requirements outside of Maryland.
