MCLA Offers Info Session on Graduate Programs


NORTH ADAMS, MASS. - Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts' (MCLA) Graduate School in Education will offer an informational session for those interested in pursuing a Master's of Education (MEd), a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS), or a Professional Master's of Business Administration (PMBA), on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 6:30 p.m. in Murdock Hall room 218 on the MCLA campus.

During this interactive session, MCLA faculty and staff will be on hand to provide an overview of the College's graduate programs. Time also will be provided for a question and answer session, and individualized advising follow-up sessions will be scheduled.  

"MCLA has a rich tradition of preparing school teachers and school leaders since our founding in 1894. Our graduates have served in a range of roles in public schools, from teachers to superintendents, and our graduate programs offer a range of options and opportunities," said Howard J. (Jake) Eberwein III, Ed.D, the College's dean of graduate and continuing education.

Introduced in spring 2011 and designed to meet the needs of the working adult learner, MCLA's PMBA program offers a blend of classroom experience and practical, hands-on fieldwork in a cohort model of academic instruction. Courses in this accelerated program - designed to be completed in less than two years - meet in a combination of online and face-to-face instruction.

MCLA's graduate classes are offered in North Adams in Pittsfield, with flexible options for both full-time and part-time students.

Registration for summer and fall 2013 courses begins in April. Those interested in attending this informational session should RSVP, 413-662-5410, or at education .
