The Master of Arts in Education offered by St. Mary's University is a 36-hour, non-thesis program with 18 hours in Education and 18 hours in a teaching specialization. 



The Education master’s program offered by St. Mary's University is designed for educators who seek a hands-on and interactive professional growth experience that emphasizes real-world application of current theory and best practices. Special emphasis is placed on expanding and enriching content knowledge, enhancing classroom instruction, and serving the needs of an increasingly diverse student population.

This program brings people with multifaceted and, at times, conflicting perspectives together in a richer and more complex search for what is reliable, worthwhile and true. When such people come together, we are able to achieve one of the highest purposes of education — a community that respects every individual within it.

The course work fosters an integration of knowledge and disciplinary specialization with academic exposure outside of education as an integral part of the program. This holistic rationale is an approach to education that emphasizes the teacher being truly present to students and also teaching, loving and respecting them. Such teachers expect competence and compassion of their students, a solid grasp of subject matter, and a living awareness of the inescapably moral and spiritual dimension of education and life. Accordingly, this program emphasizes a total view of curriculum and instruction, one that promotes ethics, service, learner-centered philosophy, uniqueness of the individual, and application of theory into practice in the school setting.
