Who Are We?

We are creating a new generation of teachers, advocates, policymakers, and leaders who understand what is needed to build a just and equitable educational system.

The M.A. in Educational Transformation (MAET) program at Georgetown University is an innovative, interdisciplinary program located in the heart of the oldest university in Washington, DC, and the oldest Catholic university in the nation. DC is our home, where we work and where we learn; our aspiration is to ensure that all children have the teachers, the schools, the opportunities, and the resources needed to thrive.

We understand the challenges of urban education and are committed to ensuring our students have the knowledge, skills, foresight, competence and understanding to transform education — to create vibrant classrooms, to design effective policies, to build relationships, and to promote justice within educational systems.

Through a residency-based model that integrates experiential learning with rigorous coursework alongside leading educators and researchers, we prepare educational leaders who will promote the transformations that are needed in classrooms, among students, and in the world to ensure that every child receives a rich education.
