Montessori Integrative Education Program (M.Ed.)

  • Program Overview

    Expand your interest in exploring and applying Montessori concepts for lifelong learning.

    The three-semester, 100 percent online, 36-credit Master of Education in Montessori Integrative Learning has options for three distinct types of students:

    1. Practitioners who wish to expand their existing knowledge and develop an area of emphasis.
    2. Lead teachers, heads of schools, and school board members, as well as other individuals who are interested in advancing Montessori ideas, but may not have a Montessori teaching credential.
    3. Teachers who wish to work with six- to twelve-year-olds. (This last option is designed for students who cannot attend training in-person and who do not need official Montessori certification.) If you are enrolled in a certificate program with one of our partners, you can receive credit for that training in the master’s program.

    Requirements for admission include an undergraduate (bachelor's) degree and written responses to questions that are part of the application process. All pertinent program and application materials are located on the TIES website.

    Note: The Montessori Integrative Learning program is not linked to Massachusetts teacher licensure.
