Our Master of Education program provides students the opportunity to build a professional base of knowledge, to graduate with the competencies and skills necessary to advance in their careers, and to contribute to the educational needs of the 21st century.

Students begin with core courses, where they develop a foundation of knowledge about education as an advanced field of study. This foundation lays the groundwork for students to examine education as a global-societal construct and to explore the array of educational experiences across a person’s lifespan. The core courses establish a shared understanding that each concentration expands upon in concentration-specific courses.

Courses within this degree are delivered in a variety of formats, allowing you to maintain work and life commitments while earning your MEd.
