About this Program

The Education Department offers the Master of Science (MS) with a major in education and a specialization in Teaching, Learning & Leadership. This off-campus, graduate program provides Midwest educators an opportunity to pursue graduate study while building valuable professional relationships with fellow educators. The faculty at Southwest Minnesota State University collaborates with regional educator practitioners to establish learning communities throughout the Midwest region. Learning Communities are conveniently located at off-campus sites in locations close to where educators live and work. Each Learning Community studies together for two academic years, meeting an equivalent of twenty times, or ten weekend meetings each year. The curriculum of the program provides educators with an in-depth understanding of educational issues pertinent to quality instruction and school renewal. Collaborative study and research, reflective teaching, action-based research projects, and active leadership provide the foundation for professional growth. The learning community environment encourages the application of current research in both pedagogy and content areas into effective school practice.
