New Professional Studies: Teaching, M.A.
A teaching track of the New Professional Studies program is offered to teams
of experienced teachers. Participants follow a two-year, three-summer integrated
program of school-based research linked to a subject specialization.
Students complete 30 credits of course work. During the first year, they complete
a research project in their own classrooms. In the second year, they complete
a team research project that spans classrooms. Teams are expected to meet weekly
and are asked to journal and participate in web-based discussions tied to classroom
work. Reflective practice, classroom research, and a focus on student learning
equip teachers to begin the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards
Specific information about required course work is available from the Initiatives
in Educational Transformation administrative office at the Prince William Campus,
