M.Ed. in Secondary Education (Non-Licensure)
The Office of Graduate and Continuing Education offers a generic master of education degree for teachers at the secondary level, which does not lead to licensure in any area. This program provides teachers with the opportunity to update their knowledge and skills and to participate in courses specific to their professional goals.
The MEd program addresses education reform issues and curriculum/development models to meet the needs of today’s school systems. The 36 credit degree program curriculum is individually planned in consultation with the advisor and provides teachers with the latest effective, research-based practices and technologies to enhance classroom instruction.
