New Partnership with the Johns Hopkins School of Education

Urban Teachers formed a new partnership with the Johns Hopkins University School of Education. Ranked the #2 graduate school of education by U.S. News & World Report, Johns Hopkins is a leader in education research and innovation. Together, we will offer a Master of Science in Education degree that prepares new teachers to succeed in urban schools through a clinical training model as rigorous as the Johns Hopkins model for doctors. The degree provides training in general and special education, equipping new teachers to meet the needs of all learners. All graduate coursework is clinically based, allowing for aspiring teachers to practice their skills immediately in the classroom.
