LOYOLA UNIVERSITY M.ED PROGRAM
Loyola University Maryland’s partnership with Montessori Northwest provides students with the opportunity to complete a M.Ed. degree in conjunction with the AMI diploma. If accepted into the Graduate School at Loyola, students earn 27 credits through the completion of their Assistants to Infancy, Primary, or Elementary AMI diplomas. The final 9 credits are completed in a 4-week intensive experience in residence at Loyola University Maryland’s Evergreen Campus in Baltimore.
International students: If you are in M-1 status for your AMI training, you will need to switch to F-1 status before attending the summer portion in Baltimore. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for further information.
Loyola University partners with Montessori Northwest to offer the M.Ed. for the Portland Assistants to Infancy Course, Portland Academic Year and Summer Course , the Milpitas Primary Course, and the Portland Elementary Course.

Whitworth University M.Ed Program
Students in the Spokane Summer Elementary course have the option of simultaneously participating in our cooperative degree program. This program is available at the graduate level: a Master’s Degree with Emphasis in Montessori Education through Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, where the summer elementary course is held. Montessori courses meet on campus during the summer; core education courses are available on campus or online. Participation in this program also allows qualifying students to apply for federal financial aid (see Whitworth’s section on Financial Aid).
The AMI Montessori course (and the AMI Observation and Practice Teaching requirements) can also be applied as graduate credit toward a Washington state teaching certification.
