Educational Studies Concentration

The Master of Science in Education concentration in Educational Studies is designed for both practitioners and newcomers to the field of education who are interested in delving into a particular set of educational topics, including learning, child development, schooling, and social policy in America. While there is a focus on instruction, the concentration does not lead to a teaching license. Graduates go on to work in international and private schools, education-related companies, non-profit organizations, and after school programs. Candidates will take courses that exemplify SESP’s commitments to equity and social justice, learning, human development, and community, while also critically exploring their own identities and biases relative to these. Courses are small, interactive, and often include field work. All of this happens at Northwestern’s School of Education and Social Policy, one of the top-rated schools of education in the United States.

For more detail about this concentration, see a description of the Educational Studies Curriculum.
