Announcement on the Center for Creative Teaching

Jan 24, 2012

After careful consideration, Bennington College has decided to suspend admissions to the Master of Arts in Teaching degree program.

While the program has produced just the kind of remarkable teachers that the College imagined at the program’s inception, traditional residential graduate degree programs such as ours have become increasingly vulnerable to larger market forces.

The College will fulfill its obligations to all students currently in the program, working closely with them between now and June 30, 2013 to ensure the successful completion of their degrees.

Bennington remains enormously proud of the more than one hundred graduates of this program who have gone on to extend its distinctive educational approach in schools and communities across the nation. While this degree program will no longer be active, our commitment to the exploration of issues around educational policy and reform will continue.
