College of Notre Dame of Maryland School of Education is offering a 10-month Master of Arts in Teaching program starting with the fall 2009 semester.
The Graduate Education Internship Program, which starts in August and concludes in May, offers classroom studies as well as a teaching internship experience. Students will be placed in a school in the county of their choice for a morning internship experience and then continue with their own classes in the afternoon at College of Notre Dame’s North Charles Street campus.
Information sessions about the program will be held Thursday, June 4, and Thursday, June 25, both at 6 p.m. in Gibbons Hall, Room 325.
The program is targeted toward career changers and recent college graduates and is expected to draw approximately 50 students during the first year.
Students have the option of pursuing a Master of Arts in Teaching with a concentration in elementary education, elementary special education or early childhood education (with further specializations in various subjects including art, biology, chemistry, English, math, physics, social studies and music).
“The need for teachers in our state is still great,” said Sister Sharon Slear, SSND, dean of education. “This program allows students to study and gain hands-on classroom experience in 10 months. Students study during the day and have their evenings and weekends free for other commitments and responsibilities.”
