Master Degree in Education
The M.Ed. is offered with emphasis in Educational Leadership, Educational Technology, Mathematics Education, Reading, and Special Education. The Master of Education programs extend and develop classroom skills and abilities of practicing teachers in elementary and secondary education. Applicants to the Master of Education program must have a Bachelor of Education degree or its equivalent from an accredited institution, and/or a current teaching certificate.
For programs which include an internship or practicum a supervision fee will be assessed to help defray the cost of the supervisor’s travel. Program assessment plans and student learning outcomes are posted on the Provost website.
The M.Ed. in Mathematics Education is designed to provide content and pedagogy appropriate for the teaching of mathematics with options for increasing the teacher’s understanding of content area literacy, the inclusion of students with special needs and utilizing technology to teach mathematics. The mathematics content is designed to strengthen understanding of the mathematics taught in the K-8 curriculum. Candidates must prepare an exit portfolio, demonstrating competency in the nine outcomes of the School of Education (i.e., philosophy, development, diversity, content, student learning, learning environment, professionalism, technology). The M.Ed. Mathematics Education program is not a teacher certification program. For an initial teaching certificate see Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education programs, or Masters of Arts in Teaching programs. Students wanting a K-8 Mathematics Education teaching endorsement must also apply to the Mathematics Education (K-8) Certificate Program.
