Graduate Programs

Graduate programs in the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development combine rigorous coursework and rich field experiences to nurture the skills and knowledge needed to help our graduate students address the challenges facing PreK-12 education. Other programs are geared toward students pursuing careers in university settings and at agencies that serve children and families. Consistently ranked among the top graduate schools for education (both online and overall) by U.S. News & World Report, the college offers graduate certificates, master’s degrees, Education Specialist (Ed.S.) degrees, and doctoral degrees. Our outstanding faculty have a wealth of research and practical experience, and have supported previous students to become well-versed in areas such as social and emotional learning, educational leadership and policy, and practices to promote diversity, equity and inclusion.
