International Teaching and Global Leadership Cohort
The Master of Science in Education — International Teaching and Global Leadership Cohort (ITGL) prepares international educators to become innovative education leaders, with the knowledge and skills to transform schools, systems, and other fast-changing learning environments around the world. The 33-credit cohort (35 credits for TEFL), which includes both core and focus area courses, provides our candidates with the opportunity to build a solid foundation of theory and practice through three semesters of coursework and continuous practical experiences. With exposure to a variety of educational experiences, candidates gain a comprehensive understanding of the different educational models employed in their focus area. This degree prepares candidates to apply their expertise effectively in their home countries.
Creative and Innovative Education
When promising learners are not engaged and challenged, a whole nation can lose tremendous potential. This focus area emphasizes developing effective programs and instruction for creative and innovative learners and instilling those learning skills in all students.
Digital Age Teaching and Learning Technology
Integrating technology into the classroom is the most highly demanded skill in education today. This focus area emphasizes Johns Hopkins expertise in creating leading-edge online tools and implementing new methods to manage educational data.
Young children learn best through structured, engaged play. This focus area emphasizes implementing evidence-based practices that bring together the latest research in neuroscience and child development to support young students.
Entrepreneur in Education
Promoting innovation in the paradigms, strategies, values and culture in school systems, social entrepreneurial ventures, and education companies is critical in today’s educational landscape. This focus area emphasizes preparing international entrepreneurs to be creative and innovative, with the knowledge and skills to become successful leaders in entrepreneurial education around the world.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
Instructional leadership in STEM education is a growing need globally. This focus area emphasizes the foundational knowledge necessary to develop and lead STEM educational efforts that support student learning and the pursuit of STEM careers.
Teaching English as a Foreign Language
In a rapidly changing global environment, education leaders play a critical role in promoting intercultural competence and respect for all learners, their languages, and their cultures. This focus area emphasizes research-based instructional practices specifically designed to foster a caring, positive partnership, team, or community that maximizes learner engagement, learning, and achievement.
