Curriculum & Instruction, Higher Education & Secondary Education

The MEd in curriculum and instruction, higher education and secondary concentration is for teachers who want to enhance their secondary-level teaching skills, gain accreditation for teaching dual-credit high school courses, or obtain the credentials for teaching at community colleges.

If this is you, then this is your program. Concentrate your degree in mathematics, science, English, history, or business, and get ready to take your career to the next level.

Before you get started, you’ll need

  • A bachelor’s degree
  • The prerequisites required by the education college’s admissions policy
  • Appropriate teaching or related experience
  • Access to a computer, webcam, and high-speed Internet as well as basic computer and word-processing skills

Degrees You Can Earn

MEd in Curriculum & Instruction, High & Secondary Education: In addition to required courses in curriculum and instruction, you’ll select up to 18 hours of courses outside of the education college, based on your degree concentration (mathematics, science, English, history, or business) and the advice of a program advisor.

Your degree will culminate in the Master Comprehensive Exam, which will cover the content of one education core course and the content of two courses within your major area.
