Master of Arts in Teaching

Leads to full teaching certification in Secondary biology, chemistry, English, social studies, physics, or math.

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.

Master of Arts in Urban Education Policy

Provides students with insight into the social, economic, political, and historical factors that drive policy and practice in urban schools today.

Through coursework and internships with community partners, including PPSD and the Rhode Island Department of Education, Brown’s yearlong Urban Education Policy program prepares students to lead the fight for equal opportunity and inclusion in city schools.

People at Brown are guided by shared values, an unyielding dedication to diversity, equity and inclusion, and a fundamental commitment to supporting one another.
