New M.Ed in Environmental Education Launched at Bard College
Passionate about Environmental Education?

Bard College is launching a new M.Ed in Environmental Education degree program at Bard College in New York’s Hudson Valley, beginning Fall 2018.

Distinctive program features include:

Integrated, interdisciplinary curriculum.
Unmatched interaction with exceptional faculty.
High-level, extended professional internship.
Strong career development, mentoring and placement.
Scholarship support available.
The M.Ed. program prepares educators to create an informed and engaged citizenry that will support progress towards a just, prosperous, and sustainable future. Through intensive academic training, real world professional experience, and career development opportunities the program enables graduates to pursue successful, high-impact careers in NGO’s, government land management agencies, private land conservation organizations, museums, environmental education centers,  private schools, and consulting firms.

Students in the M.Ed program take a carefully curated program combining a core of environmental education classes with courses from the MS programs at the Bard Center for Environmental Policy, the Bard Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program, and elective options from other graduate programs, including Bard’s MBA in Sustainability. The nine-month, first year core curriculum is taught at the main Bard campus, and integrates the study of environmental education and communication, including a January-Term intensive course focused on place-based education, with environmental science and policy, curricular development and pedagogy.

After completing the first-year courses in late May, students are no longer expected to be in residence at Bard. During the second year, each student pursues an extended, high-level professional internship. Placements include schools, museums, research institutes, and NGOs in the Hudson Valley, the New York metropolitan region, across the US, and globally, utilizing the well-developed professional networks of Bard CEP and the Bard MAT Program. In the final semester, students complete a Master’s degree capstone project under the direction of a Bard faculty member, while attending capstone seminar classes on-line.  Students gather at Bard for two, one-week residencies during this final term.

Bard College is located ninety miles north of New York City. Financial aid for the new program is available. Applications will be accepted starting in October of 2017. For more information, please contact Bard CEP Admissions Counselor Caitlin O’Donnell, codonnel at bard.edu.
