Montessori integrative learning

Montessori Integrative Education (M.Ed.)

This program addresses an evolution of Montessori insights for the current times. It honors the contributions of Maria and Mario Montessori and explores the ways in which the radical roots of the approach are still cogent. It acknowledges that the context and content for understanding the implications of the process have grown exponentially.

The three-semester, 100% online, 36-credit Master of Education in Montessori Integrative Learning has three syllabus options:

1) For practitioners who wish to expand their existing knowledge and develop an “Area of Emphasis”
2) For 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) for those 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) degree and written responses to questions that are part of the application process. We are looking for self-directed learners who enjoy serious inquiry and are interested in applying and expanding Montessori concepts for lifelong learning. 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.
