If you want to be a better teacher — a better leader — you need to leave campus and enter the classroom. That’s where you’ll work with real students, confronting real challenges.
Theory is important, of course. But at Manhattanville, though, experience is the backbone of our program. Our extensive partnerships with area schools, including satellite locations and internships available at institutions throughout the Hudson Valley, mean you’ll have firsthand opportunity to understand the issues today’s teachers face and discover pathways to overcoming those hurdles in real time. Our focus on changing suburbs and small cities means you’ll gain the tools to help communities through demographic shifts that render yesterday’s policies inadequate.
