PLEASE NOTE: Curry College requires all students on our Milton and Plymouth campuses who are registered for an on-the-ground course (including hybrid and hyflex) or those who seek on campus support services to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before arrival in the fall. In order to ensure that you are fully vaccinated at least 14 days before returning to campus, you should plan your first vaccine shot by July 1.
As you complete your course work, you and your peers will benefit from our cohort-based learning community that models the team-oriented educational workplace. In addition to hands-on fieldwork experiences in actual classrooms, you'll explore key concepts of successful educational practice, including literacy, curriculum development and lesson planning, classroom management strategies, psycho-educational assessment, creating individualized lesson plans (IEPs) and techniques to adapt and differentiate lessons for different learners.

What is Cohort Study?
As a student in the Curry College M.Ed. Program, you will be part of a cohort group. That means that the same students will be in all of your classes for the entire program, start to finish. Cohort group learning has proven to be very effective for adult learners because it creates a community of professionals who can study together, provide support, discuss common on-the-job problems, and offer networking opportunities.
New cohorts begin at our Milton and Plymouth campuses each Fall.
