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.
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 and Writing
Learn how to develop literacy skill and engage stalled readers. Diagnose reading difficulties and help English as a Second Language readers and adult readers.
You’ll learn the foundations of reading and how to diagnose and fix reading difficulties. You'll get research and real-world experience in elementary or secondary content areas from expert professors.
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.
