UNM Offers New Master's Program

MARP (MA with a focus on Reflective Practice)

Reflective Practice

MARP (MA with a focus on Reflective Practice) is a COHORT PROGRAM for licensed teachers, taught by faculty who collaborate to promote an integrated program for a dynamic learning experience.

Reflective Practice is the theme throughout this 32-credit hour graduate program.  PK-12 teachers in this cohort narrate, document, analyze, and reflect on teaching and its connection to student learning.   Teachers’ PK-12 classrooms serve as laboratories for learning about teaching.

Classes begin in the Fall semester each year, and generally, meeting every Thursday in the late afternoon (after school hours) and summer.  All classes are offered off-campus at a local school site and students typically complete MARP in five semesters.
