We were very intentional about designing the new Master of Arts in Teaching, Leadership, and Cultural Competency to support... professionals who would like to continue their education and earn an advanced degree without having to leave their home.

HigherEducation.com is proud to announce that it is partnering with The University of Iowa to offer an innovative Master of Arts in Teaching, Leadership, and Cultural Competency. This will be the first MA program in teaching offered entirely online by the university.

The University of Iowa, long recognized as one of the top research universities in the country, has taken great care to design a program that provides teachers with the specific skills and training they need professionally and can be completed while maintaining a full-time role in the classroom. HigherEducation.com will ensure that this new program is available to the largest number of new students possible.

“We were very intentional about designing the new Master of Arts in Teaching, Leadership, and Cultural Competency to support the needs of professionals who would like to continue their education and earn an advanced degree without having to leave their home or interrupt their career to return to school,” says Daniel Clay, the university’s dean of the College of Education.

The new program is an excellent choice for any educator who wants theoretical and academic knowledge in addition to professional growth. For in-state students, the curriculum counts toward Iowa teacher licensure renewal units, providing another opportunity for teachers to meet their required professional obligation for continuing education. It seeks to support a more specialized education workforce by teaching advanced skillsets aimed at improving targeted learning outcomes for K-12 students, supporting programs like Iowa’s Teacher Leadership & Compensation program, as well as mentorship opportunities by helping to identify master teachers.

“We’re excited to bring our online program management expertise to the University of Iowa, a school known around the world as a top research university and as a leader in all areas of academics. This new master’s program is impactful and focuses on key issues faced by today’s teachers, and it will provide schools and communities with the educators they need by providing them with advanced skillsets in a variety of areas. We are pleased to kick off our partnership with such an innovative and much-needed program,” says Patrick Gavin, CEO of HigherEducation.com.

Enrollment for the new Master of Arts in Teaching & Learning: Teaching, Leadership, and Cultural Competency is now open. For more information, call (844) 542-8893 or email education-info@uiowa.edu.
