Master of Arts in Teaching

Master of Arts in Teaching students are immersed in a local urban school from fall to spring, serving as teaching residents as they take courses at Brown. Drawing connections between their coursework and their experiences in the K-12 classroom allows students to continuously connect theory to practice in deep and meaningful ways.

Being able to tackle a problem that was going to have a direct impact on students — that was a very meaningful [internship] experience.
