MIC Mission & Philosophy

Students in the Master of Arts in Secondary Education with Initial Certification (MIC) program will critically explore social justice pedagogies as a part of their preparation to teach in secondary schools. The curriculum focuses on honoring the assets of students from diverse cultural, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds with a particular attention to social context. Candidates will learn through a combination of coursework, fieldwork, and inquiry and action research.
