Practical, relevant coursework.

Our teacher education master’s program emphasizes evidence-based practice that gets proven outcomes. You’ll learn research-supported teaching techniques that move the needle on student performance and address current challenges such as STEM education, inclusive classrooms, digital technology, reading and writing.

Superior professors.

At Merrimack you’ll work closely with nationally recognized teaching experts who are devoted to your success and committed to transformative reform. Our teacher education faculty includes accomplished educators such as Dr. Marie Galinski and Dr. Stephanie Garrone-Shufran, as well as prolific researchers and policy specialists such as Anne Gatling.

Online option.

Our 100 percent online teaching master’s degree gives you the same robust training and personalized faculty engagement as our on-campus program while adding flexibility and cost savings.

Social justice emphasis.

Our master’s degree in teacher education rests on the principle that a teacher’s influence flows outward from the classroom into the community, and forward from the present into the future. Merrimack empowers you to nurture tolerance, diversity, hard work and democratic engagement in your students and, by extension, in the broader society.
