The Graduate Studies Program in Education offers courses of study leading to a master’s degree in education (M.Ed.) in the areas of secondary or elementary school administration, counseling, literacy, secondary education (Providence Alliance for Catholic Teachers- PACT), and special education. Each program was planned after extensive examination of certification requirements in the state of Rhode Island. All graduate education programs have received state approval. Rhode Island is a member of NASDTEC, therefore, students who complete a program can easily transfer their RI certificates to any of the NASDTEC states that have reciprocity with Rhode Island.
