Graduate Studies in the School of Education
Sonoma State University’s School of Education offers five advanced credential programs and six areas of concentration within the Master of Arts in Education degree. Each of these programs reflects the philosophy, purpose, and goals of the School of Education Social Justice Vision and Mission Statement developed by the School of Education faculty. In our M.A. programs students critically examine educational theories and research through a variety of empirical, theoretical, and cultural lenses to develop an informed educational vision and innovative pedagogy in a variety of educational settings. Students have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty and colleagues to examine and influence current educational practice through research, project development, and advocacy. We expect graduates to emerge from their work at Sonoma State University as leaders in their field and agents of change.
