In 2015, Urban Teachers entered into a collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University School of Education, a leader in education research and innovation and ranked among the top schools of education by U.S. News & World Report. Through our collaboration with the School of Education, we will offer a Master of Science in Education degree that prepares new teachers to succeed in urban schools. (http://education.jhu.edu/master-of-science-in-education-educational-studies-urban-teachers/)
The degree provides rigorous clinical training in general and special education, equipping new teachers to meet the needs of all learners. Our graduate coursework is clinically based, allowing aspiring teachers to practice their skills immediately in the classroom.
This coursework is not online but is taught by JHU staff in each city site.
Johns Hopkins University School of Education Application
After you’ve accepted the Letter of Intent to join Urban Teachers’ Cohort 2020, Urban Teachers will send you the link to complete the Johns Hopkins University School of Education online application. You will be applying for the “Master’s Degree [MS-Urban Teachers only]” option. You will be asked to select the program option you wish to pursue (either Elementary or Secondary). You should indicate your preference. (Note: Final decisions about Secondary placements will be made after completing an assessment or through the PACT test in Texas). On the “Status and Requirements” webpage, you will be asked to indicate whether you have previously applied to the School of Education. On the “Apply” webpage, you will be asked to provide biographical information, employment and education history, etc.
The Johns Hopkins University School of Education will also require official transcripts and will ask you to complete an online application to complete the JHU admissions process. They will not consider your application complete until they receive these documents. Urban Teachers also provides a packet on your behalf to the Johns Hopkins University School of Education with your resume, unofficial transcript(s), completed recommendations and writing sample. The School of Education application process is free to Urban Teachers participants. Once you are enrolled in the Johns Hopkins University School of Education, their Financial Aid Office will process your FAFSA application and Urban Teachers will send you any additional information you might need at this time.
The pre-professional tests are a requirement for Urban Teachers NOT for the Johns Hopkins University.
