Through JSC’s Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies program, educators with a master’s degree may pursue advanced, in-depth study in a concentrated area of interest. A CAGS program can be customized to address the current and pressing needs in content, methods or policy. In collaboration with faculty and peers, participants design and conduct advanced inquiry projects to examine and resolve contemporary education problems. Currently, participants are studying topics such as co-teaching, personal learning plans, design thinking and curriculum integration.
Unlike most CAGs, which typically start at 60 or 30 credits, CAGs at JSC can be designed starting at 15 credits (e.g., five 3-credit classes). CAGSs also may be completed entirely off campus.
