Master's Degree of Education

A collaboration between Carroll School, Lesley University and Buckingham Browne & Nichols School (BB&N), The Angela Wilkins Program of Graduate Studies in Education is two dynamic programs each leading to a full Massachusetts initial license and a Master’s degree in Education: Moderate Disabilities - Pre-K - Grade 8 and Moderate Disabilities - Grades 5 - 12.

These intensive fourteen-month programs start in early June and end in the following summer. Graduate interns take courses at Carroll School and Lesley University and student teach in classrooms at Carroll and/or BB&N. Unlike other programs, graduate students receive nationally-accredited Orton-Gillingham training, at no additional cost.


As a graduate intern at Carroll, I was surrounded by the most knowledgeable teaching professionals I’ve ever worked with. Not only are they experts in the courses they teach, but the teachers also have a unique understanding about how different brains learn. I grew so much as a teacher.

Master's in Education for Students with Dyslexia

Our Guiding Principle

We believe that teacher trainees who are immersed in the classroom under the guidance of a master teacher are better prepared to step into a classroom. Graduate students experience all hands-on aspects of everyday teaching - mentor/mentee collaboration, curriculum/lesson design, teaching principles, behavior management, classroom design, professional portfolios, parent conferences, formal and informal student assessments.
