The Education program offers two teacher certification options that lead to endorsements in elementary education and/or middle school math/science and language arts/social studies. The Master of Education degree is designed for practicing educators who seek further professional development and growth. Coursework leading to the Professional Certificate may be taken within the framework of the Master of Education degree or as a stand-alone program.
Students in the Master of Education program work toward accomplishing professional goals at the classroom, school or community levels. The ideal candidates for this program are people committed to energizing their teaching and to building collegial relationships with other professionals who share common goals, commitments and professional questions.
The innovative Elementary Teacher Certification program engages students in university coursework integrated with field experiences in several school districts. As members of a cohort, professional relationships and professional growth are nurtured as students engage in program activities.
