in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins School of Education
In 2015 Urban Teachers entered into a collaboration with the Johns Hopkins School of Education, a leader in education research and innovation and ranked among the top schools of education by U.S. News & World Report. Through our collaboration with the School of Education, we will offer a Master of Science in Education degree that prepares new teachers to succeed in urban schools.
The degree provides rigorous clinical training in general and special education, equipping new teachers to meet the needs of all learners. Our graduate coursework is clinically based, allowing aspiring teachers to practice their skills immediately in the classroom.
