The Master of Education (M. Ed.) Curriculum and Instruction program is designed for current P-12 teachers seeking an advanced degree.  (Higher education professionals should click here for the post-secondary and higher education programs.)

Laying a foundation of theory and best practice, the M.Ed. C&I Program promotes continuing professional development and life-long learning for teachers and educational leaders. This is consistent with the recognition that capable and caring educators are necessary for students at all ages, ranging from the very young through adulthood.

Every educator in the Curriculum and Instruction Program selects from a variety of course offerings to focus studies on their unique areas of interest.  A wide variety of hybrid and online courses create the best of both worlds--flexibility with program focus and personal attention.  Applicants meet with an advisor to design and update their dynamic program plan as they progress through their studies.

Alongside the unique program focus, every student takes four core foundational courses on topics crucial to current educational practice: research, diversity, learning, and technology. Finally, candidates conclude their program with a capstone experience demonstrating their ability to conduct research on a critical need.
