Master of Arts in Education


What differentiates Alverno College's Master of Arts program from other programs?

Alverno has long been a leader in education, and we are recognized nationally and internationally for our faculty's work with ability-based education and performance-based assessment. The Master of Arts degree carries on the college's tradition in the liberal arts, with its particular focus on integrative, experiential, and reflective approaches to learning.

Our Master of Arts is designed for teachers in K-12 schools and in technical and community colleges, and for persons working in the areas of instructional design, training, human resources, or organizational development in business, government, and not-for-profit agencies.

Open to men and women, courses are offered in four every-other weekend time slots: Friday night, Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday afternoon. Some courses meet on selected weekday evenings. A special summer schedule offers options for daytime, evening, and weekend classes.  Click here to access a complete academic calendar.

The curriculum consists of a common set of core courses and courses specific to each specialization. It is designed so that candidates can complete the degree in two or three years.
