MA in Education

Education Programs Info Session
Thursday, Sept. 18, 5-6:30 p.m.

Our students tell us that the Antioch University Santa Barbara Masters in Education program has strengthened their resolve to promote social justice and provided them with renewed commitment to work for organizational and social reform.

If you want to be surrounded by others who share this vision, we invite you to discover our MA in Education with an emphasis in Social Justice and Educational Leadership (MAE). The program is designed to give students a critical understanding of organizations, including schools, how to navigate organizational systems with critical perspective and to develop the skills to facilitate positive change.

The program provides a constructivist, reflective education focusing on both theory and practice. The development of intrapersonal and interpersonal skills facilitated by our cohort model, supports both individual and group learning. Each student’s potential role as an organizational leader is cultivated in a reflective supportive environment.

Our 5 quarter MAE program is designed to help you create the changes you want to see in the education world. Our caring faculty with expertise in educational and organizational leadership are change agents themselves. Our classes are small, experiential, discussion based. Student work is evaluated through narratives and without grades. Required classes are offered on weekday evenings or Saturdays. The program is tailored to meet individual student interests; focused research can occur in the student’s work environment. This flexible program is appropriate for educators in Pre-K through grade 12, non-traditional schools, higher education, non-profit leaders, business and product educators.
