Educational Studies

As of Fall 2018 the Master of Arts (MA) in Education is a flexible degree that allows students to customize their program of study with an advisor.

Welcome from the Chair

The Tufts MA in Educational Studies is an opportunity for motivated, independent-minded learners seeking new ideas in education. Students customize their programs of study to support their interests, in consultation with faculty advisors.

We welcome those interested in studying education, including K-12 teachers, to design a program to support their intellectual and professional development and advancement; community activists who see education as key to societal health; educators in any setting who would like to conduct research on learning and instruction.

Some students look to apply studies of critical theory in STEM Education. Others are interested in developing community spaces of learning — to enhance their practices as K-12 teachers or their preparation for college teaching, to work with students making the transition from high school to college, or to study educational practices in other countries. We are excited to explore new possibilities.

Please read on about the degree and about the faculty advisors in Education. If you have any questions, feel free to send a note — to the advisor whose interests seem most aligned with yours, or to me, the department chair. We'll be happy to hear from you.
