Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Education

The Graduate Program in Education and Neumann University is pleased to offer the Social, Emotional, and Behavioral Wellness of PK-12 Students program, an official Pennsylvania Department of Education endorsement. The content and courses within this program are infused with social emotional learning focused on the classroom, school building, district and family. Faculty are Neumann University adjunct faculty who specialize in Social Emotional Learning.  
The goal of this program is to make explicit how social, emotional, behavioral health integrated into academics improves attendance, graduation rates and prospects for employment, increases capacity for learning, mastery of subject material, commitment to school, time devoted to school work and standardized test scores while reducing suspensions and grade retentions (Taylor et al. 2017). The endorsement may be incorporated into the Social Emotional Learning, M.S.  
Your program will be exciting, challenging, invigorating, rewarding, practical, meaningful and immediately transferable to your work with students.
Field Experience Projects In each course, candidates will spend a minimum of 6 hours engaged in comprehensive and coordinated field experience with embedded candidate competencies. These field experiences, led by school and workforce partners, will provide learning experiences that model the integration and application of social, emotional and behavioral health concepts.

Admission Requirements

  • Entry into this program may be done on a matriculated or non-matriculated basis.
  • In order to receive the state endorsement, the candidate must possess a valid Pennsylvania Teaching Certificate.
