Graduate Course Work & Faculty

Graduate course work, generally, will introduce students to contemporary issues in the discipline, help them develop a critical perspective for evaluating these and future developments, and empower them to become advocates for best practice in education. In that regard, graduate course work is designed to be significantly different from undergraduate studies in the following ways:

  • requiring a greater depth and intensity of study;
  • demanding a higher level of academic/intellectual rigor;
  • focusing primarily on advanced and specialized topics;
  • exploring the integration of theory and practice; and
  • relying on pedagogical practices that require more personal interactions with the instructor, more collaborative interactions with fellow graduate students, and more self-directed learning than undergraduate studies.

Cohort-based coursework may be offered in locations convenient to students if there are at least 10 students at the off site location. Schools may request graduate program coursework  for specific cohorts.

The graduate programs offers face-to-face , hybrid, and online courses. Classes are available during the school year (late afternoons, evenings and Saturdays) and during the summer.

Additional Certificate Programs

Additional certificate programs are available from time to time through the Northeast Kingdom School Development Center (NEKSDC) and the Vermont Higher Education Consortium (VTHEC). Lyndon has articulation agreements with the Higher Education Collaborative and the Upper Valley Education Institute for those students wishing to complete the M.Ed.
