The master of education in curriculum and instruction provides professional and cognate experiences for veteran teachers and offers a non-licensure option for students who have been admitted to the Master of Teaching program but choose not to complete licensure.

Students in our master of education in curriculum and instruction program may select from three different concentrations: in instructional technology, online teaching, or teaching and learning. Enrollment in the teaching and learning concentration requires recommendation from the student’s adviser and approval by the department chair. Content courses within the program are selected in consultation with an adviser from the appropriate concentration.
