The Master’s in Education (Ed.M.) prepares students with the skills needed to change the world through education. HGSE’s Ed.M. centers on three pillars of study: Foundations, which focus on core skills and knowledge; Programs, which focus on specific areas of practice; and Concentrations, which are opportunities to deepen contextual knowledge. Together, these pillars empower students to create transformative learning at every level and in every role. The Human Development and Education (HDE) Program prepares students to understand and support the unique needs and healthy growth of all learners — whether you intend to explore a direct service role, start a nonprofit organization, engage in clinical or counseling work, or pursue doctoral research.
