Leading Educational Innovation and Improvement
The School of Education MicroMasters allows learners to take five courses focused on educational innovation and improvement, with a specific focus on the principles and application of Improvement Science. These courses can be used by practicing teachers, leaders, and reformers to advance their current knowledge and earn a certificate. Those who successfully complete the MicroMasters and are admitted to the School of Education can also be granted advanced standing that will reduce the credit-hour requirements for a master’s degree specializing in such areas as Educational Leadership and Policy, Teaching and Learning, New Media and Literacy, or Urban Pedagogy.
MicroMasters is a series of courses designed to advance your career and offer a path to an accelerated master’s program. Faster, flexible and free to try, MicroMasters provides access to advanced education for everyone, everywhere. Created by prestigious universities, including the University of Michigan, and offered in the most in-demand fields, MicroMasters programs are recognized by companies for real job relevancy and provide deeper learning in a specific career area.
