Graduate & Continuing Education

Master’s Degrees in Education and Continuing Education for Teachers, Leaders, and Education Professionals

Thoughtful and knowledgeable teachers and leaders are needed now more than ever. For more than a century, Bank Street has focused on understanding how students learn best. Here, you’ll enter a dedicated community of educators learning to improve the quality of classroom practice, advocate nationally for students and families, and promote system and policy change to bring effective and equitable teaching and learning to all.
Our in-person and online graduate programs for teachers and other education professionals include master’s degree programs in teaching and learning, child life, museum studies, and educational leadership, in addition to professional certificate programs and a range of short-format courses, workshops, and special events.

These graduate programs lead to the Master of Science (MS), Master of Science in Education (MSEd), or the advanced Master of Education (EdM) and are grounded in current research and knowledge of human development, learning theory, and sustained clinical practice that meet the needs of today’s learning environments.

With a master’s degree or advanced certificate from Bank Street, you’ll stand out as a forward-thinking educator and leader—confident, well-prepared, and ready to thrive across the diverse settings where children and adults live and learn.

We hope you’ll explore our graduate programs and consider taking a transformative step—both for your career and for your students, their families, and our communities.
