About the Brandeis Teacher Education Program

The Brandeis Teacher Education Program is grounded in four themes: Teaching for Social Justice, Teaching as Inquiry, Teaching all Learners, and Teaching for Understanding. At Brandeis, teaching for social justice isn't just a slogan or lofty ideal; it is about teachers' everyday interactions with students and their daily work in schools. Our instructors walk their talk: they model the same kind of student-centered pedagogy that the program espouses for pk-12 teachers. Whether in the university or in schools, teaching is about students – who they are, what they bring, and how they think.

The Brandeis Teacher Education Program is a personalized, cohort-based program, wholly integrated with a full-year, student-teaching internship. It offers both Undergraduate (UDG) and Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) pathways to licensure, in elementary and secondary education, public schools and Jewish day schools.
