Education for Inclusion: Celebrating Diversity
The Master of Arts in International and Multicultural Education (IME) Program is dedicated to understanding formal and informal education within its social, cultural, and linguistic contexts around the world.
While the program addresses the realities of urban schooling in the United States, it maintains a global focus by carefully examining the impact of globalization and immigration on education worldwide.
The MA in IME Program consists of 30 credits; see the variety of courses offered within the Program Structure.
Optional Concentration in Human Rights Education
Students may also choose the MA in IME with a Concentration in Human Rights Education (HRE). Students interested in this concentration take a set of four courses that provide knowledge for understanding human rights issues and skills for promoting international human rights. See the Program Structure for the HRE Concentration.
To accommodate working professionals, classes are held on selected Friday evenings and all day Saturdays (approximately every other weekend during each semester) following the School of Education's Teaching Weekend Schedule.
New students are accepted for spring and fall semesters; see application deadlines and application requirements. Applicants are encouraged to apply early.
The MA in IME is useful for the following
types of professionals:
- Classroom teachers who wish to develop their content knowledge and expertise to advance professionally and to specialize in curriculum development.
- Those who want to build a career in nonprofit organizations with a focus on International and Multicultural Education.
- Students who want to eventually pursue doctoral study in International and Multicultural Education.
