Bloomfield College Announces Two New Graduate Programs in Education

Master's degrees at Bloomfield College

By Alicia Cook

Beginning this fall, Bloomfield College will offer a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education and a Master’s degree in Special Education.

“The launch of these new Master’s degree programs in Early Childhood Education and Special Education will help us continue to advance the mission of Bloomfield College,” said Dr. Tresmaine Grimes, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty. “Graduates will leave us better prepared to face the challenges of teaching students who are more diverse than ever before. We congratulate our Education faculty for all of their efforts in this regard.”

The MA in Early Childhood Education is 40 credits and intended for individuals who already possess a teacher certification in Early Childhood Education (ECE), or in a related area, but are seeking to add another in Early Childhood Education as an endorsement while obtaining the MA degree or those seeking initial certification in ECE.

The MA in Special Education is 36 credits and intended for currently credentialed teachers interested in developing advanced skills for teaching K-12 learners with disabilities, in particular, teaching learners with autism and other developmental disabilities. Graduate students are prepared to set up effective learning environments and instructional programs using evidence-based practices based on applied behavior analysis (ABA). 

Both programs will run 12 months of the year to accelerate progress toward the degrees while offering the traditional two courses per session. Additionally, both programs are designed in a way that students who are enrolled in the Graduate Certificate in Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Education program at the College can add just a few additional courses to earn their master’s degree.

“We are very excited about the two new master’s degree programs, which are natural extensions of our existing, excellent graduate certificate program in post-baccalaureate teacher education,” said Dr. Carolyn Spies, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs/Dean of Graduate Studies. “The graduate degree programs will provide motivation for our Education majors to aspire to higher levels of education.”

Bloomfield College will be accepting applications for both programs soon. Please direct any questions to Jorge Fernandez, Assistant Director of Admission, at 973-748-9000 ext. 1222 or jorge_fernandez@bloomfield.edu.
