Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Jesuit Education in a Global World

Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Jesuit Education in a Global World


Excel as an Ignatian Educator

Boston College’s new online master's program prepares students to be excellent teachers in the Ignatian tradition - reinforcing Jesuit values of social justice, formation, and reflection. Students emerge ready to thrive in traditional and non-traditional global education settings.

Jesuit Studies courses prompt students to learn about the Jesuit and Ignatian teaching traditions and inspirations, while Global Perspectives courses provide the international lens that will enable these educators to best meet the needs of their students. The breadth of content in the Global Perspectives courses also allows students to select courses based on their interests and needs. 

This degree program does not lead to licensure.
