EdM in Elementary Education
Our Master of Education program (EdM) in Elementary Education is designed for candidates with liberal arts or professional undergraduate degrees who are now seeking licensure as an elementary teacher. This EdM program at Boston University prepares you for a teaching career based on the belief that children should be engaged in authentic, purposeful activities, and joyful learning. We have a strong tradition of preparing exemplary teachers who care deeply about the education of children and are dedicated to narrowing the opportunity gap to ensure that all children reach their true potential.

More About Our Program
Our faculty members possess not only demonstrated knowledge of their content, integral to the elementary curriculum, but also a passion for the ideas embodied in their discipline. We teach students to bring a high level of pedagogical knowledge to their teaching, translating theory, and research into effective practice, and we place significant emphasis on the practice of critical reflection to enhance teaching practices. Our pedagogical courses and classroom experiences, urban and suburban, are designed to induct teachers into the current research and best practices of each subject area in the elementary curriculum.
