Promote a healthy teaching and learning environment that allows students to thrive.

The education specialization provides coursework that focuses on teaching and learning using practical, timeless, evidence-based practices to create a sense of belonging, minimize harm, and improve school climate.

Themes explored in the education specialization include facilitating conversations to navigate complex situations with students, families, colleagues, and administrators. Students in this specialization will develop the skills to support their students socially, emotionally, neurologically, and academically. These skills will allow graduates to develop anti-racist education, challenge current educational systems, and cultivate students who are better equipped to navigate complex challenges, self-regulate, manage conflict, and become better citizens.

Within the degree specialization, students can trailblaze their own path and expand the field of restorative practices by adding the thesis option to their master’s degree.
