This program is designed for students with a bachelor’s degree. Students take courses leading to American Montessori Society certification while simultaneously working on a master’s degree. Upon completion of the Montessori courses, they will need only 6 hours to complete the master’s program. This master’s degree plan contains concentration in Montessori methods and supportive coursework in other fields, research, and evaluation.
Classes meet Monday–Friday, 9am–4pm
After finishing the above classes, students complete a half-internship 5 days a week in a Montessori 3–6 classroom for 9 months.
A written comprehensive exam is required upon completion of the master’s program.
Students may be eligible for partial tuition grants offered by the Education Dept. For other financial aid, check with the Oklahoma City University Office of Financial Aid.
