Curriculum and Instruction (M.Ed.)

Dr. Kris Ward, Program Director

The Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction degree is a 36 hour program which will prepare specialists in curriculum design, management, and implementation in PK-12 and post-secondary learning environments. In addition to this focus, a student-selected cognate will afford the opportunity for advanced study in a complementary area. Students who satisfactorily complete the M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction will have the academic credentials to serve as curriculum specialists, in both public and private, as well as PK-12 and postsecondary education endeavors. Completion of this degree will provide the M.Ed. graduate with the academic credentials to serve as faculty in postsecondary schools, such as community colleges. This degree is not designed to lead to certification; however, individual program choices within the cognate can be tailored to meet certain requirements for certificated areas.
