Art of Teaching Program

M.S. Ed. in The Art of Teaching

Sarah Lawrence College's Art of Teaching graduate program leads to a Master of Science in Education degree and teacher certification in Early Childhood and Childhood (Elementary) Education. We believe that teaching is indeed an art, uniquely satisfying, always made and remade. The Art of Teaching is child centered and culturally sensitive, with observation at its core. Extensive observation and classroom teaching combine with academic discussions and course readings connecting theory with practice. Small seminar classes create an intimate environment that encourages the sharing of experiences and ideas. Our Childhood and Early Childhood certification program is committed to public education, particularly in urban areas, and graduates find teaching positions in a range of public and private schools.

Course work may be considered in three categories: courses connecting content and pedagogy; pedagogical courses; and practicums.
