M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction
For answers to more FAQs about the School of Education, see the general FAQs page.
- What can I do with a degree in curriculum & instruction?
There are a number of possible uses for a degree in curriculum and instruction. Of course, one will become a better teacher and may remain in the classroom (usually with an increase in salary). With additional courses, one can achieve a Type 75 principal certificate, and become a department chair, team leader or even curriculum director. And, of course, earning a master's degree is a step toward a doctorate. A Type 75 also qualifies one as a principal or assistant principal, and both roles require an extensive knowledge of curriculum and instruction.
- How long will it take to complete this program?
A full-time student enrolled in three courses per semester can complete this program in four semesters, with an allowance for the comprehensive examination in the fourth semester. Part-time students who enroll in two courses per semester in an academic year typically complete the program in six semesters. Students have five years from acceptance to complete the program.
- Where can I take classes?
All courses are available at the Water Tower Campus.
