Curriculum and Instruction


Return to Programs Return to: Programs

Offered for experienced teachers, the Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree program is designed to provide each participant with an individually tailored set of experiences for in-depth professional study consistent with his or her professional goals. Beyond a limited core of required courses, there is ample flexibility for the student and advisor to plan an appropriate course of study.

Applicants for doctoral work are generally experienced educators. Doctoral-level (Ph.D. and Ed.D.) graduates typically assume positions as faculty in colleges and universities, as leaders of curriculum and instruction improvement in school divisions, or as program specialists in human service agencies. Specialized study in curriculum and instruction, instructional use of computers, and research is required, with additional work selected from program areas across the Curry School. Emphasis is on analysis and evaluation of teaching, design and evaluation of educational programs, processes of change, and practical strategies for inquiry.
