New Master of Education in Teaching and Learning Summer Format

March 18, 2015

Aquinas College is pleased to announce a new format of course delivery for the Master of Education in Teaching and Learning degree. Class offerings now accommodate teachers who want to further their education while maintaining their current positions without relocating to Nashville. Shifting courses to the summer format allows more individuals to encounter teaching and learning in the Dominican tradition, benefit from the experience and expertise of the faculty in the School of Education at Aquinas College, and collaborate with other professional educators striving to enhance learning for the students in their classrooms.

A greater number of classes will take place on the Aquinas campus during June and July for two consecutive summers with some courses offered during the academic year in a directed study format. Courses taken during the academic year will be introduced and defined in the summer prior to the school year. Studies, research, and practical application of theories and skills learned will be completed in consultation with and direction from your designated Aquinas professor throughout the academic year. Master of Education students will come to campus one weekend each semester for two consecutive years. The program is a total of 33 credit hours and the cost will be approximately $25,000 for tuition, plus additional fees for room, board, and additional course resources. The program will begin with a new cohort each summer and courses will be delivered in a sequence that builds one upon the other. Please see the attached information sheet for further details.

For additional information, to request a meeting or phone conference with the Dean of the School of Education, or to request an application, please contact Linda Moore at 615-297-6545 x422 or  education@aquinascollege.edu.
