Lincoln Center Scholars Program – Theatre Education (MA)
Welcome to the Lincoln Center Scholars Program – Theatre Education (MA) program home page. Use this page as a guide to the program from acceptance to graduation.
The Lincoln Center Scholars Program, a partnership between Lincoln Center Education and the Hunter College School of Education, was developed in response to the critical need for qualified, certified arts teachers in New York City Schools. Hunter College Lincoln Center Scholars are fully subsidized students working toward their Masters in Education in the Hunter College School of Education while also teaching full-time in a New York City classroom. Students have access to intensive training at Lincoln Center Education, and upon successful completion of the program students receive a master’s degree from Hunter College and are eligible for New York State initial teacher certification. The full cost of tuition, fees, and books are covered by the Lincoln Center Scholars program.
Major support for the Lincoln Center Scholars Program is provided by the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund.
The program advisor will notify students of their cohort’s particular course of study before registering for classes. Course sequence is subject to change. To view course descriptions, progress standards and exit requirements visit the catalog.
