MTEA Cohort

MTEA ONLINE COHORT - FALL 2017 - ENROLLING NOW!

Brochure Cover MTEA Online Cohort

 

We are hoping to start our fourth cohort in Fall 2017 or spring 2018, depending on interest. With the exception of one all-day Saturday orientation (date TBD), all classes will be 100% online, so the entire master's degree can be completed from a distance or during non-work hours. The cohort will move through at the rate of 2 courses per semester, so in just 24 months, you can have a Master of Arts Degree in Early Childhood Education.

This is a non-licensure degree, but for students who already have licensure K-6, 1-6, K-12, etc. the courses will meet the requirements for an add-on PreK-3 license in the state of TN. Out of state students can get a special eRate.

Anyone with questions can contact Dr. Amy Malkus at or 410-463-0841.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q. What are the requirements for admission to the program?

A. We require a minimum 3.0 GPA at the undergraduate level for unconditional admission. Students with a 2.8-3.0 GPA are sometimes admitted conditionally depending on circumstances (e.g., letters of recommendation, work experience, etc.). Conditionally admitted students must have no less than a B in any of their first 3 graduate classes and a minimum 3.0 GPA overall in their first 9 hours in order to continue in the program.

Q. Are there any tests (e.g., GREs) required?

A. No.

Q. Do I need to be a licensed teacher in order to apply?

A. While many of our online cohort students are already licensed teachers, this is NOT a requirement. Anyone wishing to get a Master's Degree in Early Childhood is welcome to apply.
