Think Local, Think Global

Responsive ways to productively attend to local contexts alongside the pressures and promises of a globalizing world, form the tasks of educating in classrooms today. Students will work together with their supervisors to design programs that uniquely meet their interests and goals by choosing courses that cut across our four program themes of curriculum, digital learning, diversity, and educational leadership and policy.  
Graduates will bring renewed and informed understandings to their educative roles locally and globally in early childhood, K-12, post secondary, alternative, and community educational settings, as they attend to the complexities of teaching and learning meaningfully and effectively.
