Program Overview

The goal of the education concentration is to support students who eventually want to become classroom teachers and/or work in student support roles in schools, or serve as leaders in schools, colleges or community-based educational programs. Our coursework emphasizes models for transformative education, and the need for equity, justice and systems reforms throughout all forms and levels of education. Students with an education concentration may be early childhood educators needing to complete a BA, interested in preparing for a teacher’s credential program through Antioch’s graduate programs in Education, or aiming to start their own mission & justice driven educational program.
