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.
