Master of Arts in Education

Division of Education Mission Statement

Mission guided by the vision of the Brothers of Christian Instruction, the Division of Education develops educators who serve all learners with a willing spirit in a global society.

Three distinctive features characterize the Division of Education at Walsh University: the commitment to Judeo-Christian ideals in professional practices; respect for the dignity of all learners and the potentials they represent; and the critical importance of service learning. These commitments are evident in all aspects of the activities and services offered by the Division of Education.

The faculty and students enjoy close connections that represent the best ideals of the Judeo-Christian traditions. The small student/faculty ratio enables students to develop caring, compassionate, and supportive relationships in the interest of accommodating each student’s unique life experiences and academic needs. Intra-community relationships provide a foundation in which open communication, collaboration, and creativity manifest in the professional practices that students apply and demonstrate in field and clinical experiences.

Believing that ALL learners have special needs, the Division of Education fosters the positive development of each student’s knowledge, skills, and dispositions to enable each one to teach a diverse learning population effectively. Each Walsh University student is exposed to a wide variety of models of teaching, curriculum designs, and diverse community connections in classroom practices and in field experiences.

The commitment to service learning is evident in the number and variety of field placements, which are carefully structured throughout the Teacher Preparation Program. These experiences enable each student to provide tutorial support, intervention service, and enrichment instruction through partnerships with community programs and schools.

The Walsh University graduate program in Education seeks to provide superior educational service to its students and the communities it serves. The program curriculum enhances the professional growth of practicing educators and, as a result of the improved instruction they then provide in their own schools, furthers the growth and development of their pupils and students. The school systems and communities mutually benefit from these professional educators because of their leadership, enhanced abilities, increased knowledge, effective modeling of the best in the profession, and expanded resources.

The Master of Arts in Education degree is designed for in-service school personnel.
