Arts Integration Strategies

Graduate Certificate, Off-Campus Program

Use creativity in the curriculum to meet learning standards.

At Lesley, we recognize the value of the arts as a powerful pathway to learning. In our interdisciplinary arts integration program, you’ll discover how to use music, drama, visual arts, storytelling, and poetry to increase student engagement and achievement.

You'll learn about arts-related universal design for learning, differentiated instruction, and Common Core standards—knowledge that you can bring directly back to your classroom. And because we encourage self-reflection and exploration in our courses, you'll begin to develop a greater understanding of students with different learning styles, cultures, and languages.

By studying here, you'll work with faculty to co-create new approaches to enliven and deepen your current teaching practice. And you'll benefit from our location in Cambridge, where artistic expression thrives and provides continual inspiration. 

Come study at New England's premier university for teacher preparation. If you are interested in obtaining a master's degree, you can transfer the courses in this certificate program to the M.Ed. in Integrated Teaching through the Arts.
