Master's Programs in Teaching and Curriculum (General/Non-Certification)

The Warner School offers master’s degree programs in education for those interested in issues of teaching and learning, but who are not interested in pursuing teaching certification.  Teaching and learning happen in many places beyond U.S. schools – in community agencies, churches, museums, industry, schools abroad, arts organizations, camps, and a wide variety of other institutions.  These organizations play an integral role in helping children and adults develop a life-long commitment to learning.  Professionals in these organizations often turn to the Warner School to advance their understanding of their work and obtain professional credentials through a master’s degree.  This option may also be appropriate for private-school teachers and international students for whom the requirements for New York State teaching certification do not apply.
The programs allow students maximum flexibility in designing an individual course of study, as there are a minimum number of required courses.   Students in the program are required to identify an area of specialization (such as environmental, diversity, or arts education) and complete courses or independent study relevant to the specialization.
For international and other students interested in a master's in teaching in a specific subject area without NYS certification, we offer the following programs:
For students interested in teaching and learning in a health-care environment, Warner now has a specialized master’s program in health professions education.
