The Bryn Mawr/Haverford Education Program invites students to study the discipline of education, explore the interdisciplinary field of educational studies, begin the path of teacher preparation for traditional classrooms, and participate in teaching experiences in a range of classroom and extra-classroom settings. Focused on teaching and learning as social, political, and cultural activities, the Education Program challenges students to explore the relationships among schooling, human development, and society as they gain knowledge and skills of educational theory and practice. Students who complete one of the Education Program options are prepared to become lifelong learners, educators, researchers, leaders and agents of change.
In keeping with the progressive philosophy of the program, each course includes a field experience - from two hours each week to full-time practice teaching - through which students learn to integrate academic and experiential knowledge.
