Learning Community

SMSU wants to bring our Learning Community to you!

Our learning communities allow you to learn and network in person with colleagues from your area —on weekends— all while earning your master’s degree in two years. With enough interest, we can bring this program to you!

What is a learning community?

A learning community is a graduate program delivered at locations outside of our campus. The locations are determined by the interest in a particular area. See where our learning community sites are located this year.  We come to you! The learning community gives you the opportunity to pursue a degree while building valuable professional relationships with educators who live and work in your area and understand the unique needs of your communities.

A Learning Community will help you:

  • Revitalize and energize your career focus
  • Transform your professional practice while expanding your
    content expertise
  • Engage in action-based learning using your classroom as your lab
  • Create and implement usable, applicable take-and-go strategies
  • Earn your master’s degree meeting only ten weekends per year
  • Develop career-long connections
