The Master of Education degree in secondary education offers an innovative series of experiences that develop the skills and concepts essential for effective teaching. Secondary school teaching is socially significant, intellectually serious work for resourceful, intelligent, and caring professionals.
The Secondary Education Program stresses an integrated university-public school approach to the preparation of future teachers, underscoring GW’s commitment to teaching in a collaborative social context. Graduate students become part of a diverse community of scholars and teachers dedicated to the improvement of teaching and learning in public schools.
