Our Program

Our graduate programs combine hands-on learning with real-world experiences to turn students into change agents for America’s urban schools.

Both inside and outside the classroom, students learn how to make an impact on the education system through teaching, research/policy, creating urban schools that prioritize inclusion and celebrate diversity. Thanks to carefully forged partnerships with schools, civic leaders and non-profit organizations in Providence, students at the graduate level have ample opportunity for practice-based experiences in classrooms and boardrooms — making for a more rigorous, meaningful and engaging learning experience.

What Our Students Say

  • There are things I learned in the MAT program that I still carry into my classroom every single day.

    Sofia Dias, Master of Arts in Teaching ‘17
  • Instead of just learning theory and guessing how I would apply it in my career, I got insight into what it’s like to work for organizations that are actually implementing policies and programs.

    Wayne Taliaferro, Master's in Urban Education Policy ‘11
