Lesley University Master’s Degree Program

lesley university 3


Lesley University of Cambridge Mass. offers a two-year program at Walnut Hill leading to a Master’s Degree in Education in Curriculum and Instruction With a Specialization In Teaching Through the Arts.

This 33-credit program lasts 22 months and consists of 11 courses taken in sequence. Students learn that all of the arts – music, drama, storytelling, movement, fine arts, poetry – are tools that can enhance learning in the classroom. The program is offered in a blended format with courses delivered in an intensive weekend format supplemented by field-based experiences, as well as online reflection, collaboration, and research.


Students accepted in this off-campus program have the same rights, privileges and obligations as on-campus Graduate School students. They are assigned academic and program advisors and may apply for financial aid.

Lesley is now accepting applications for the next cycle at Walnut Hill. If you are interested in the MEd Program, please call 888-LESLEY-U (888-537-5398) or request information at info@lesley.edu. There will be information meetings periodically, so check back for dates. 




Thesis Project:

Students immerse themselves in a supportive learning community as they move together through a sequential program of study, providing collegial support, a strong sense of creativity, skills in arts integration, and a wealth of shared pedagogical expertise. The blended delivery model and the practical, relevant nature of the coursework allows working professionals to continue to teach or work in a related setting while using their classrooms as learning laboratories to test, implement, and evaluate the theory and practice of arts-integrated curriculum.



Information Meetings

We will be holding information meeting for those who are interested in learning more about the Creative Arts In Learning Program at Walnut Hill.  Please call for upcoming information meeting dates.

Information meetings are held at Walnut Hill, 81 Chester Road, Raymond, NH.  For more information call Debbie at 603 895-2437.
