Master of Science in the Art of Teaching
About the Art of Teaching
The Art of Teaching is a master’s program with three New York State certification tracks:
- Early Childhood Education (birth to second grade)
- Childhood Education (first to sixth grade)
- Dual Early Childhood/Childhood Education
Working together in seminar classes, students receive individual attention from faculty as they connect their teaching experiences in schools with theoretical and practical ideas in education. The Art of Teaching is designed as an integrated program of study, enabling graduates to enter the field with a clearly articulated understanding of teaching and learning.
Sarah Lawrence College has been named a recipient of the Child Care Council of Westchester's 2015 Champions for Children Awards. The awards recognize individuals and organizations who demonstrate an unwavering commitment to bright futures for children by creating or funding life-changing programs and initiatives. Sarah Lawrence is being recognized for providing quality early care and education through the Early Childhood Center and the Child Development Institute, and for preparing the early education workforce through the Art of Teaching and Child Development graduate degree programs.
