Master of Science in Education, Curriculum and Instruction

 

The MSE program is a two-year graduate-level degree designed for professional educators that has been developed to help enhance careers and fine tune instructional knowledge.

 

The Curriculum and Instruction program is based on the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards' Five Propositions of Accomplished Teaching. This degree is a 30-credit-hour program with three specialization options:

 

The program provides the skills, techniques, and dispositions that insure quality teaching, and a positive impact on student learning

 

Course Formats

 

Students have access to highly qualified faculty who are leaders in the world of literacy education. Personal instruction and advising from one of these faculty members helps students be successful in the classroom and in the field. Courses are offered in flexible formats (online and/or hybrid) to work around busy schedules.

 

All classes will be offered in either online or hybrid formats with exception of the practica requirement (EDFL 5320 & EDLF 5330), which are offered during the summer at the UCM Summit Center. Hybrids courses combine the traditional course format with online learning to create clear communication and collaboration while still being flexible.

 

Depending on the student's personal schedule, it usually takes anywhere from 1 to 3 years to complete the 32 graduate hours required for the degree. We suggest that students take their time with graduate courses as the course load tends to be higher than undergraduate classes.

 

Courses required for this degree include:
