Masters in Teaching

- Elementary Education
Teaching is a calling. Have you heard yours? Embedded within a university-wide historical commitment to social justice and equity, we prepare teachers for the overarching purpose of improving humanity and community through a concern for human justice, respect for all living things, and a concern for the natural world. You’ll work in a collaborative and inspirational environment with a diverse group of peers to develop your craft as a teacher.
Candidates join a cohort for the Master’s program. These colleagues form a bond that expands the graduate school experience. They become an important resource for each other during their time at Antioch and into the future. The cohort meets two nights a week from 4:00 – 9:30 on the Belltown campus, which is easily accessed by public transportation.
Classes are taught with candidate backgrounds and interests as a resource. Instruction models the type of classrooms where students build their own knowledge and understanding. Teaching enactments in class are designed to have students practice the constructivist pedagogy. Faculty is directly involved in the candidate’s classroom internships and these experiences are utilized to expand classroom discussion and activities.
Antioch’s legacy for social justice helps direct our program on campus and our candidates are encouraged to experience under-resourced school settings as part of their internships.
