Bahamian Master's Candidates Graduate from Collaborative Program
June 04, 2009
Nineteen master's candidates graduated from Wheelock's first Master of Science Programme in Early Childhood and Elementary Teaching in The Bahamas on May 28. This program is offered in collaboration with The College of The Bahamas.
President Jackie Jenkins-Scott was present to confer the degrees.
Learners participated in this program from Nassau as well as several Family Islands across The Bahamas. They are preschool teachers, elementary educators, Ministry of Education officials, and principals.
The cohort participated in a four-week Summer Immersion Program in Boston in 2008, in which they took tow intensive courses, prepared for their independent research project, and took advantage of Boston's rich educational and cultural offerings.
After the success of this inaugural cohort, Wheelock College and The College of The Bahamas are now recruiting participants for a second cohort.
