New Master of Arts in Educational Transformation
A new graduate program, an MA in Educational Transformation at Georgetown, will be launching this summer. In its first year, they will be offering two concentrations—Learning & Teaching and Advocacy & Policy—both of which are interdisciplinary, built around a residency component, and committed to social justice in education and greater equity in schooling, particularly in urban areas.
The Advocacy & Policy concentration spans 12 months—two semesters and two summers—with residency placements at policy organizations, think tanks, governmental agencies, and nonprofits during the academic year. The Learning & Teaching concentration includes classroom placements during the school year and will lead, over two years, to both an MA and teaching licensure in either English as a Second Language/English Language Learners or secondary science.
More information, as well as a link to the application portal, is available on their website: edtransform.georgetown.edu. They're currently accepting applications for summer 2017 matriculation; the final deadline is March 1 and the priority funding deadline is January 15.
