The graduate programs in education are committed to providing graduate-level coursework in core and concentration areas and reflective opportunities for educators to develop professionally in the field of education.
Today's best teachers strive to continuously improve each student's classroom experience by enhancing their individual teaching skills. Many teachers find themselves called to move beyond the classroom into influential administrative positions.
We offer two graduate education degrees: A Master of Education and a Doctor of Education.
The Master of Education degree from Texas Wesleyan gives you the tools to flourish in the classroom and advance in your profession.
Choose from seven concentrations in the M.Ed. or pursue additional certifications. The M.Ed. can open the door to career opportunities in administration or content specific positions. In as little as 18 months it's possible to complete our 36 credit hour degree and many current teachers take advantage of grant opportunities to assist in financing their studies. Classes are offered on evenings and weekends during the school year, then daytime during the summer term.

Small class sizes allow our faculty to get to know you as an individual student. Our faculty have experience in the K-12 classroom and/or administrative positions that allow them to blend theory with practice and to relate course content to today's challenges.
Many of the areas of study include hands on experience. Science and Second Language Education and Culture students often travel to gain field experience that result in exciting classroom teaching. Reading clinics take place on the Wesleyan campus with area students. Principal candidates spend 160 hours working with current administrators to apply classroom content to real life administrative practices.
An M.Ed. from Texas Wesleyan can give educators an additional area of specialty to help increase their marketability and job opportunities. Other concentrations such as Administration or Reading Specialist can lead to teaching related or administrative positions outside of the classroom.
