Graduate Certificate in Urban Education

The Graduate Certificate in Urban Education is a six course, 18-credit, interdisciplinary program that uses a social justice and advocacy lens to prepare professionals to broaden and deepen their understanding of the urban educational landscape.

Though this certificate program is not one of our many state-approved teacher certifications, it was developed from a request from the Catholic University School Partnership (CUSP) to provide greater professional development opportunities for educators working in urban areas. 

Certificate Highlights

  • This is a part-time, 18-credit certificate program composed of six courses.
  • Currently, this is the only Urban Education graduate certificate offered by a collegiate institution in the Philadelphia area.
  • The program pulls from sociological, anthropological, and psychological approaches to identity and solve problems and to understand issues of equity and access.
  • The coursework is designed to meet the burgeoning demand for transformative educators who attach rigor to progressive ideas and holistic connections.

If you would like to start a cohort of this program at your school, please contact Thomas Conway, EdD, for more information.
