Frequently Asked Questions
The TIES-ENDICOTT Master of Education in Montessori Integrative Learning explores and expands upon the contexts that contribute to Montessori teaching and learning. We value Maria Montessori’s insight that recognizes the inherent human potential. That awareness begins at birth and, in the right environment, is capable of creating a new humanity on a sustainable Earth.

When do classes begin?
TIES offers two start dates. Full swing studies begin in September and the semester lasts six months. We also offer a Spring seminar for those seeking a gentle immersion into graduate work. Orientation starts in April, followed by a four-week seminar on Mapping Transitions for Integrative Learning ending in late May. The Summer months are free and then full swing studies commence in September.
How much is tuition?
2019-2020 tuition $7599. Educators affiliated with our Partnered Training Centers may realize a tuition reduction. Financial aid is available through Endicott College and can be utilized to support teacher training fees as well.
What can I do with this degree?
Broadly speaking, no student knows exactly where their journey pauses and a new path begins. With an M.Ed., professionals enter the field with the gold standard of degrees allowing freedom to pursue most any direction. Through TIES, graduates have actualized opportunities becoming Lead Guides, Heads of School, Directors of Training Centers, Presidents of Universities, civil service professionals, earning their PhD, within both private and public sectors.
When will I graduate?
Studies commence in September 2019 and graduation is April 2021.
How many hours per week can I expect to spend on TIES studies?
On average, students report spending approximately 12 hours per week on reading, annotating and taking part in the online seminars.
Do I need to be on campus at a particular time (either physically or online)?
All course-work occurs online without the requirement to travel to any location during the program. Seminar dialogues are asynchronous taking place over two-week periods. Self-directed adult learners participate as best suits their personal schedules. In many ways, exploring classmates’ reflections while having unfettered space to contemplate one’s own responses makes for deeper learning opportunities.
When should I apply?
The application deadline is August 9th. If you are applying and have not already, please schedule a phone consult with an admissions guide. Allow enough time for transcripts and references to arrive.
