Barry University is the only university in the state of Florida offering a graduate degree with a specialization in Montessori education. Our program is accredited by MACTE and affiliated with the American Montessori Society (AMS). This program is specific to developing Montessorian educators who will work with young students between the ages of 2.5 to 6 years old.
Classes are structured with a blend of required face-to-face and online/synchronous credit hours and most are based in our very own Montessori lab for a unique learning experience. Our degree equips students who are looking to provide instructional leadership to the Montessori and educational communities while also satisfying the requirements to receive the coveted credential from AMS.
We also offer the Montessori Early Childhood Certificate to students who are not pursuing a graduate degree.
