The Education program of St. George's University is designed to support experienced educators who are interested in gaining deeper theoretical and practical knowledge in order to become a change agent in their field.


The program is designed to accommodate the schedules of working professionals; using a blended-learning model, students will be required to be on campus three weeks per semester (once in the beginning, once in the middle and once in the end), with the remaining work completed online, both synchronously and asynchronously. For the in-person weeks, classes will be held all day Sunday and also Monday through Thursday evenings. The final semester of the program is structured differently as students will be working on completing their capstone project. 

Through the Education program of St. George's University, students will have opportunities to tailor their coursework and research to their context, whether in primary, secondary or tertiary schools, governmental or non-governmental agencies, or medical education. This full-time degree program is completed in two years (including fall and spring semesters). The cohort design is a key element of this program. Students will enter and complete the program together. In total, 31 of the 34 credits are structured to be taken together as a cohort, and three credits can be taken through electives or can be covered through transfer credit from SGU’s faculty development certificate program or other graduate-level coursework. Because of the cohort model, this program cannot be completed on a part-time basis.

The program is guided by six ‘big ideas’ or transferable concepts/themes that students will continuously and recursively engage with throughout the program from different angles in different courses. These six big ideas are:
  • Inquiry
  • Collaboration
  • Identity
  • Equity
  • Agency
  • Power
