The Master of Education program seeks to prepare licensed teachers to take on leadership roles in PreK-12 schools. Candidates will select from programs of study that will prepare them to become pedagogical experts and leaders in their positions as teachers. Currently practicing teachers can choose elective hours to customize their programs to meet their professional goals, which may include becoming a curriculum developer, curriculum supervisor, instructional coach or mentor to other teachers. For example one emphasis area is Teaching English as a Second Language/International Emphasis.
