Curriculum and Instruction (EDCI)

Graduate Degree Program
College: Education

Abstract

The Curriculum and Instruction (EDCI) program, housed within the Department of Teaching and Learning, Policy and Leadership, offers graduate study leading to the Master of Education (M.Ed.). The Department offers a variety of programs individually designed to meet graduate students’ personal and professional goals which may include educational research, teaching, supervising, providing leadership as curriculum specialists within the disciplines, teacher education or consulting at all levels of instruction: elementary, secondary and higher education. Some of the M.Ed. concentrations lead to teacher certification, including concentrations for candidates who have a bachelor’s degree in fields other than education and wish to become certified teachers. Other options include "stand-alone" M.Ed. concentrations intended for teachers and other education professionals. We also offer masters programs intended for education professionals whose work centers around research, as M.A. in the Teaching & Learning, Policy & Leadership program (TLPL).

For a complete list of current programs and specializations, please see the TLPL master's program listings.

NOTE: Students interested in the M.Ed. (as opposed to the M.A.) programs should apply to EDCI, even though the Department of Teaching and Learning, Policy and Leadership (TLPL) now sponsors these programs. Students interested in a master of arts (M.A.) degree should visit Education: Teaching and Learning, Policy and Leadership (EDTL) in the graduate catalog. Students interested in the Department’s Ph.D. program should go to Teaching and Learning, Policy and Leadership (TLPL) in the graduate catalog.
