Diversity and Student Resilience Specialization

Prepare yourself as an educator to support the full rage of needs among your students.

York College’s Diversity and Student Resilience program will help prepare you as an educator to support the full range of needs among your students.  Your studies will include child and adolescent mental health literacy, social and cultural competence, supporting student social and emotional needs, structural inequity in education, education policy and reform,  school and community collaboration for resilience and a research seminar.  This program will position you to build the skills you need to help your students overcome non-academic factors that affect learning.

You can choose to earn the full Master of Education degree with a specialization in Diversity and Student Resilience and a standalone Social, Emotional and Behavioral Wellness (PK-12) endorsement from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (33 credits) or to earn the endorsement alone (12 credits).

Like all graduate education programs, our classes will be offered using a blended approach and are fee free!  We are also proud to offer several courses in this program at our new Center for Community Engagement in Downtown York!

This program is pending board approval in January 2019.
