Off-Site Partner Training Institutes

Concurrent M.Ed. Pathway

Loyola University Maryland offers a 33-credit Master of Education program in Montessori Education with three concenrations: Birth to Three (0-3), Early Childhood Education (3-6), and Elementary Education (6-12). This unique program is offered in partnership with the select group of AMI institutes listed below. Candidates must dually enroll at one of our off-site partner institutes and earn graduate credits throughout their AMI training, then complete subsequent online coursework with Loyola University Maryland. Note: this program does not require travel to Loyola's campus, and therefore an I-20 cannot be issued by Loyola.)

Each of our partners is affiliated with the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), the organization Dr. Montessori founded in 1929 to promote the cause of all children around the world.
