This program is designed to allow teachers to advance their individual knowledge and skills required to design and incorporate instructional teaching and learning modifications into the daily process of instruction essential to meeting the needs of all levels of learners in the classroom.

Students will have the opportunity to learn under experienced secondary education professionals whose expertise is in teaching and learning issues. The program continues the College's educational philosophy to develop competence in careers that balance theoretical knowledge with rigorous application in professional practice. A distinctive feature within the program is one where the graduate student will be conducting a research study into a topic of interest that is also a topic of interest of school stakeholders whether they are parents, administrators, teachers, students, or community members.

DelVal offers graduate students the opportunity to learn from some of the region's top academic administrators and teachers. In fact, 90% of our faculty are practitioner based. You will be taking courses from the people you work for or with, district by district.

Our program helps transform classroom discussions into real-world professional skills, through a series of intense professional studies and experiences related to the student's chosen career path. The acquisition of skills offers students the opportunity to expand their understanding of the learning and leadership theories while pursuing the advanced credentials.

By combining knowledge with experience, DelVal's programs prepare students to function as informed, inquiring and skilled teachers and leaders within the field of education.
