Master of Education

You know education matters. You know what it can do for someone’s life. Think of what it 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:


You'll build the skills to motivate students and teachers to achieve a common vision, and you'll also learn how to assess that achievement and adapt to specific situations in leadership.

Gifted & Talented Education

You’ll learn curriculum design assessment and differentiated instructional strategies – and you’ll design and conduct a research project to submit for publication in an educational journal or text.

Math Education

We'll teach you how to present material, use technology and improve your mathematics instruction at any teaching level.

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.

Reading Specialist

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.

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.
