Philadelphia Campus Students in Class


Program Overview

If you are interested in developing empowering and impactful teaching methods, creating inspiring and meaningful educational programs, and examining the transformative potential of education within urban schools, then the Master of Science in Transformative Education and Social Change (TESC) is for you!

Our TESC program centers on a critical action research project that encourages our students to create solutions to issues they see within their own teaching environments.

This cohort-based program is for educators and community members who seek to have a positive, meaningful, and critical impact on students and the world we all share with them. You’ll find a flexible and supportive learning environment at our Philadelphia campus with advisors who will work with you directly to customize your degree. Graduates of the program apply their research directly to their own classrooms, school districts, and communities to make a positive impact.
