Bachelor’s Degree with Montessori Education Concentration

For over a decade the Montessori Training Center Northeast has partnered with the University of Hartford to offer the opportunity to combine Montessori training with higher education degrees.

The bachelor’s degree with Montessori education concentration recognizes the strength of Montessori education and the intensive preparation of Montessori teachers.  Through this program students have the opportunity to earn an undergraduate degree with an Early Childhood or Elementary Montessori concentration from the University of Hartford.

University of Hartford education degree programs prepare candidates for entry-level teaching positions to roles in higher education and are grounded in standards-based curricula that provide teacher candidates with relevant coursework in teaching and learning that leads to certification in specialized programs.

The bachelor’s degree with Montessori education concentration pairs the University of Hartford’s curriculum with Association of Montessori Internationale (AMI) teacher training offered exclusively through MTCNE, putting students on course to earn an internationally-recognized AMI diploma by the time they graduate. Through our partnership with the University of Hartford, students can deepen their knowledge of Montessori methods through practical interaction with public school curriculum and contexts.
