Prescott College MA in Education

Education (MA)

The Master of Arts in Education allows students to curate a self-directed program around broader themes in education. Students have studied education policy, theories in adult learning, or multicultural education. Students work with experts in their chosen field, whether that be a teacher they admire, or a non-profit manager that can teach them the skills they’re looking for. Unlike 100% online degrees, this online program is a limited-residency format that combines online classes, mentored studies, and in-person opportunities to connect with faculty and other students.

Program benefits:

  • You have the flexibility to study precisely what inspires you and with the support of our experienced faculty.
