Master of Education

You know education matters and what it can do for someone’s life. Think of what a Master of Education degree can do for yours.

What will I learn?

First, you'll build your teaching skills and learn how to critically evaluate education practice. But you'll also work in a specific concentration that focuses on what you want to learn and prepares you for advanced certification. You can study one concentration or more if you'd like:

Reading Specialist and Writing

As a Reading Specialist, you'll learn the foundations of reading and how to diagnose and fix reading difficulties. Then turn that knowledge into ways to engage stalled readers to develop their literacy skills.

Second Language Education and Culture
Understand the cultural issues for non-English speakers of different ages. We’ll teach you the importance of communication across cultures – and you’ll learn how to transform a classroom with it.
