Sunbridge Institute Partnership
SUNY Empire State University has partnered with Sunbridge Institute to provide its students a pathway to earning a Master of Education (M.Ed) in Curriculum and Instruction or a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Waldorf Education. Twelve elective credits will be awarded to SUNY Empire graduate students in either program who provide official transcripts documenting their completion of the Waldorf Early Childhood or Elementary teacher education programs. This credit is awarded based on a SUNY Empire Professional Learning Evaluation (PLE) of Sunbridge Institute’s educational program.
