The M.Ed in Human Development program is offered in partnership with Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS). The program focuses on theory and contemporary educational research related to adolescent social, cognitive, emotional, and physical development, and the translation of that research into principles of instructional practice that positively influence adolescents' academic achievement, motivation to achieve, and school adjustment in secondary education settings. There is a strong programmatic emphasis on diversity and the impact of individual differences on predicted outcomes. The program employs a cohort model with new cohorts beginning every fall and is designed to be completed in five continuous semesters. As of this writing, the program has graduated over 160 MCPS teachers and paraprofessionals.
New for Fall 2015, we are offering two 15-Credit Certificate Options:
Achievement Motivation and Adolescent Self and Social Processes (AMASSP) &
Adolescent Cognitive Development and Motivation to Read (ACDMR)
