Program Details

Penn GSE delivers unique and sustained support to the practicing teachers in the program, both in teaching assignments and your Penn academic program of study. Our expert faculty and dedicated mentors help you discover the kind of educator you want to be, prepare you for your role as a teacher-leader, and help interested students explore ways they might use their foundational experience to pursue a career outside of the classroom.

Courses build on the knowledge and skills you are acquiring during your teaching experience. They leverage inquiry, critical thinking, and problem solving to prepare you to become a skilled educator. To accommodate your full schedule as a practicing teacher pursuing a graduate education in our program, our courses meet in the evenings and on weekends.
