Graduate Programs in Elementary and Middle Grades Education

Teaching professionals looking for an advanced degree can pursue a Master of Arts in Education (M.A.Ed.).  Our programs offer innovative and challenging curriculums designed to prepare teachers to develop and apply research skills, expand and deepen content area knowledge, and further the understanding of child and educational psychology in order to provide opportunities for curriculum development and exploration of current methodology.  The coursework enables students to be inviting, reflective decision makers who can give leadership to the local school system in order to implement or improve elementary and middle grades programs.

Graduate Assistantships
Graduate assistantships are available on a competitive basis to well-qualified graduate students. With an assistantship, you receive a monthly stipend for fulfilling teaching and research duties in addition to your graduate coursework.
