Children Writing

The MIT program is a rigorous, full-time, 5 quarter graduate degree program blending an incremented field experience throughout a full-year internship in a K-12 classroom accompanying day and evening classes. Coursework will be linked to classroom experience and will meet statewide certification requirements for K-12 teachers.

This program follows a cohort model. Each cohort begins in summer and concludes the certification stage at the end of the following summer quarter. The Masters of Education Degree (ME.d.) will be granted after completion of the next stage of the program, which requires additional coursework and a final orals defense.

Applications for the summer 2024 cohort will be available in November.
