The M.A.T. and M.Ed. Elementary and Secondary @ UNHM
The Teacher Education program at UNH Manchester is committed to preparing teachers for culturally, linguistically, and socioeconomically diverse schools. Manchester (pop. 108,000) has a long history as an immigrant city and that continues to this day as witnessed by the city's vibrant immigrant and refugee population. Our partnership schools are the most diverse in the state and over 70 different languages are spoken in the school district. UNH teacher education students have numerous opportunities to complete practica, projects, and internships in diverse urban classrooms and schools. Issues related to the challenges and rewards of serving in diverse schools are woven into all of the teacher preparation courses. Students also have numerous opportunities to participate in and contribute to the professional knowledge base through public conference presentations, organizing community panels, and/or organizing after school professional development sessions for colleagues at public schools. UNH Durham students can take courses at either campus. Durham students interested in completing their EDUC 500 course in a diverse urban school can do so in Manchester. For more information on EDUC 500 in Manchester, contact Judy Sharkey (firstname.lastname@example.org).
