New Waldorf Teacher Program at Antioch University NE

November 2014

Antioch University New England’s Waldorf Teacher Education programs are the only accredited Waldorf master’s programs in the US. The program is also the only Waldorf Teacher Education program that offers an elementary public school teacher certification option.

The Waldorf program’s internationally renowned faculty have been Waldorf classroom teachers themselves for many years. They have published books on the subject, and are popular speakers in Waldorf communities the world over. Antioch University New England is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

The Waldorf Teacher Education program at Antioch University New England (AUNE) offers a two-summer master’s in education (MEd) degree, with a transdisciplinary focus on healing education, beginning in summer 2014. This advanced level program is offered by the Waldorf Program of AUNE in collaboration with the Camphill School of Curative Education and Social Therapy, bringing together experienced anthroposophic practitioners from various disciplines, united by the striving to work out of healing impulses in lifespan development. Participants will typically have EITHER:

  • A minimum of five to seven years of professional experience in a relevant field, with a practice based on anthroposophic foundations, or
  • Have completed Stage 2 of a program of the Camphill School of Curative Education and Social Therapy and be concurrently enrolled in the advanced level of that program.

The program may also interest practitioners who have completed a professional training program without formal accreditation in the past and now want to earn a master’s degree from an accredited university. This advanced track master’s program with a transdisciplinary focus on healing education is designed for those practitioners who wish to:

  • Further transform and evolve their practice through applied spiritual scientific inquiry
  • Develop methodological approaches to work in a disciplined and focused way with questions arising from their practice
  • Conduct research in a specialized focus area of their choice
  • Enhance their capacity for collaborative inquiry and work in transdisciplinary contexts
  • Innovate and plant seeds for future development within their field of practice

The overall aim is to move beyond mastery of one’s established professional practice, through active engagement in contemplative and collaborative action research, based on a deepened understanding of the human being and the development of tools and capacities for applied spiritual scientific research. Participants in the 32-credit MEd program will work together with AUNE and Camphill faculty during two summer residencies in Wilton, New Hampshire. Practicum and on-line action research projects will be undertaken in the intervening year, and a master’s project/thesis will be completed in the final fall semester. Each student will be assigned an advisor on the basis of a chosen focus area of research and professional background. A 28-credit certificate option without master’s thesis is also available.
