Learning Sciences (MA)

The most innovative and effective educators stretch. They're relentless. They suspect that there's always a better way---and they find it. Those who attend graduate programs at ASU's Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College receive best-in-class preparation that allows them to harness and create knowledge, mobilize people and take action to improve education. These master's degree and doctoral programs prepare graduates to thrive in their careers and take leadership positions in advancing the world's most important profession.

The MA in learning sciences proceeds from an understanding that learning happens in many places that include but are not limited to schools. Graduates of the program will be equipped to design effective learning systems in a broad range of formal and informal settings that include museums, libraries, workplaces and schools. This program focuses on the power of design thinking to improve educational systems and provides students with a blend of theoretical insights and practical tools that will prepare them to shape learning environments and experiences. The systems-level approach includes cognitive, social and contextual factors and the interactions among them. Graduates will become leaders in the development, integration and improvement of learning and teaching systems.
