Program Overview

Degrees Offered: M.Ed., M.A.

Graduate offerings in Education provide opportunities for educators to further develop specialized areas of interest and integrate their practice and understandings within a framework of educational research and inquiry.

Programs are designed for school teachers, subject area coordinators, educational administrators, and educators in non-school settings.

The master's degree program is comprised of core courses and courses within thematic areas. It is designed so that students receive foundational instruction in general education and curriculum theory, and the opportunity to personalize their learning by focusing inquiry within and across thematic areas. Students are encouraged to undertake studies within the context of their professional careers.

The M.Ed. is typically completed as a part-time program. The M.A. can be completed on either a part-time or full-time basis.

The College of Graduate Studies offers two master's degree routes that support a broad range of qualitative and quantitative approaches. The program culminates with a completion of a project (M.Ed.) or thesis (M.A.).
