Innovative education... Engaged educators
The Master of Education in Secondary Education degree program provides a range of opportunities for practicing teachers and other educators to develop their unique skills in order to increase teachers’ impact on students. This degree has been developed to build a solid foundation of knowledge, skills, and understanding for dedicated experienced professionals. This program is founded on a deep respect for practicing educators and is committed to strengthening and renewing their teaching through a process of increasing knowledge and professional capacity, self-evaluation and reflection on their own practice.
We seek to foster teachers who care deeply about students, create appropriate learning environments, and develop their own skills in order to nurture the greatest human potential in each learner. The graduate of this program will have a deep commitment to the professional education community, a focused association with the school community and a strong connection to educational research.
The M.Ed. with an emphasis in curriculum and instruction is designed for graduate students who wish to further their competencies as teacher or curriculum specialist or instructional leaders.
