At Wilson College, we believe that successful teachers need a strong liberal arts education, in-depth knowledge of pedagogy and a mastery of current theory, practice and technology. Our Master of Education graduates are successful teachers and more. They are teacher-leaders.
Wilson’s Master of Education degree is designed for women and men who are elementary and secondary teachers and want to be even better teachers. Our challenging program hones professional teaching skills through research and classroom practices, fostering teaching excellence and teacher leadership while providing the necessary courses for those in need of the Pennsylvania Instructional II certification.”
