USF's M.A. degree in International & Multicultural Education (IME) Program is dedicated to understanding formal and informal education within its sociocultural, linguistic, and political contexts around the world.

Based on principles of equity, social justice, and human rights, the program critically addresses the realities of education within and beyond the borders of public schooling in the United States and around the world.

Distinctive Features

  • Rich in-class learning experiences with expert faculty blended with opportunities for practical work in schools and community organizations in the Bay Area.
  • Curriculum and pedagogy aimed at addressing inequities based on race, class, gender, sexual identity, religion, and nation.
  • A strong sense of community composed of highly diverse faculty and students who offer personal and scholarly support

Program Details

The MA in International and Multicultural Education is rooted in critical social theory and the practice of critical pedagogy. This program provides a dynamic learning community where students benefit from rigorous scholarship and experience both in the classroom and in the community. We believe that our program equips students with the knowledge and strategies they need to be highly effective social justice teachers, leaders, and practitioners across various learning contexts in the U.S. and abroad.

We interweave theory and practice while utilizing the following lenses to inform our curriculum

  • equity and social justice education

  • youth culture and resistance
  • human rights and social movements
  • globalization and migration studies

The only program offered by Walden that is state-approved as leading to any administrative/leadership license (e.g., assistant principal, principal, teacher leader, superintendent) is the MS in Education, Educational Leadership and Administration (Principal Licensure Program), which has been approved in Ohio for leading to building principal licensure (grades preK–6, grades 4–9, and grades 5–12).

Walden University meets the Ohio Board of Regents’ standards for graduate programs and the Ohio State Board of Education’s standards for Building Level Principal Licenses (grades PreK—6, grades 4—9, and grades 5—12). Upon successful completion of this program, Walden can recommend candidates for principal licensure to the state of Ohio. Candidates who complete this program may qualify for principal licensure in many other states; however, individuals must review their state’s regulations to ensure the program meets all requirements, paying particular attention to any requirements specific to out-of-state program completers.

Walden enrollment advisors can provide guidance on licensure issues; however, it remains the individual’s responsibility to understand and comply with all state licensure requirements. Walden makes no representation or guarantee that completion of Walden coursework or programs will permit an individual to obtain state licensure or endorsement. For additional guidance on licensure issues, please refer to http://www.WaldenU.edu/educlicensure.

For the MS in Education, Educational Leadership and Administration (Principal Licensure Preparation) only: Students who reside in Minnesota are not eligible for admission to the MS ED – Ed Leadership Program but should instead enroll in the EdS – Ed Leadership Program that is approved by the MN Board of School Administrators to meet requirements for eligibility for licensure as a school principal in Minnesota.

Graduates of Walden’s MS in Education – Educational Leadership who wish to seek principal licensure in Minnesota should first obtain principal licensure in Ohio and then apply for a licensure under the “license in hand” provisions in the MN Board of School Administrators (MBOSA) regulations. Under these regulations, a provisional license will be issued and additional coursework and field experiences will be required to meet requirements.

Walden enrollment advisors can provide guidance on licensure issues; however, it remains the individual’s responsibility to understand and comply with all state licensure requirements. Walden makes no representation or guarantee that completion of Walden coursework or programs will permit an individual to obtain state licensure or endorsement.

Program Details

Designed to support teachers of early childhood through college, as well as educators working in non-formal settings such as community organizations, Human Rights Education (HRE) entails understanding the promise of rights guarantees and the gap between rights and actual realities.

Courses examine the right to education, schooling with dignity and rights, and curricular efforts towards social justice and comprehensive human rights. Students engage with issues in local and global contexts, with emphasis on globalization, migration, social movements, and transnationalism.

Transformation is an essential element of HRE, and is done through a process of education that empowers people to make changes in their own lives, as well as in their families, communities, and institutions.

Program Delivery

The program follows a schedule of alternate weekend classes that convene nine times a semester (Friday evenings and all day Saturdays). See Teaching Weekend dates.

A hallmark of the Masters in Human Rights Education program is its flexibility to work with diverse students. Students can complete the coursework requirements in as few as 18 months (two academic year semesters plus the summer term) and can extend the program as long as needed (up to 5 years). Most students complete the Masters program in 2 academic years with summer coursework often included.

Testimonial

“Coming out of my undergraduate program, I had a lot of experience with subject material but didn't have the first clue about teaching. Potsdam’s graduate program provided a great mix of theory and practice; the 100 hour practicum, as well as graduate level theory and research courses, allows you to try to mix some of the things you've learned into your curriculum as you work in the classrooms. A personal highlight for me was the degree of interest that the staff and faculty took in making sure the students got the most out of their education.” —Colin French
