School of Education
“Merrimack’s School of Education offers dynamic, responsive and focused programs that prepare you for success in the field. Our faculty have extensive scholarly and PreK-12 experience.” - Dan Butin, PhD, Dean, School of Education
Our graduates are teachers and leaders who collaborate, reflect and make an impact. We emphasize:
- Deep learning. Education is transformational. Our classrooms, our courses and our passion are all grounded in the knowledge that learning matters.
- Bringing theory to life. Knowledge and practice must inform each other. We connect books with classrooms and ideas with actions.
- Making a difference. Education can change our classrooms, our schools and our communities. We prepare educators who understand that schools play a key role in a diverse and democratic society.
