Loyola University Maryland’s School of Education is launching a newly designed master’s degree in Montessori education option in the summer of 2022– The M.Ed. in Montessori Education.
This Master of Education program is designed for trained Montessori professionals looking to strengthen their personal and professional potential. The 36-credit degree sequence is offered in a one or two-year format, consisting of high-quality online coursework taught by professionals who are passionate about equitable Montessori education for all students. Graduates emerge from our program as reflective practitioners who show compassion, curiosity, and commitment to a constructivist approach in education. 
“The Center for Montessori Education and Loyola University Maryland have had a strong presence in the world of Montessori for 30 years. We are excited to open our doors to a new kind of master’s degree to support experienced Montessori practitioners” said Carrie Horwitz Lang, M.Ed, program director of Montessori Education.  “This program takes Montessori education to the next level for Montessori professionals and dives deep into best practices in education from birth through adolescents, action research, neurodiversity in the classroom, and observational skills.”
For prospective students, our program now has two pathways towards their M.Ed. in Montessori education.  For experienced Montessori practitioners looking for that next step in their career, come join our new master’s program starting Summer 2022.  For students interested in taking AMI Montessori training, our M.Ed. AMI has multiple course offerings across the country.  
“Our mission is to create leaders in Montessori education who work alongside communities and cultures, engaging in equitable approaches to teaching and learning based on the philosophy of Maria Montessori,” said Lang.
