Linking theory to practice for work inside and outside of classrooms

The Graduate School of Education was founded in the tradition of progressive education and is committed to learner-centered education based on sound developmental principles. The master's programs integrate direct experience with children, teachers, and families, exploration and examination of theory, and observation and reflection. These programs prepare adults for professional work in schools, museums, hospitals, and community organizations.

All of Bank Street master's programs include small group work, opportunities for active learning in dialogue with instructors and peers, as well as focused, individual mentoring and professional development with faculty advisors. Here is a list of the programs we offer:
