Curriculum and Instruction, M.Ed. 

The M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction provides current educators skills and knowledge to improve their teaching effectiveness to enhance their students' achievement. Throughout the program candidates will learn how to apply evidence-based instruction, assessments, national and state standards, and comprehensive accountability measures to help transform their classrooms. Candidates can choose from two delivery methods: Traditional (16-week courses) or Online (MC7 Program--see below).

MC7 Online Program Option

With the launch of the MC7 online delivery system in summer 2017, courses are arranged in a specific sequence and are offered in five (5), 7-week terms which correspond with the fall (fall term 1 & 2), spring (spring term 1 & 2), and summer (summer term 1 & 2) semesters. The MC7 course rotation has been constructed to allow candidates who are full time (typically 2 classes per 7-week term) to complete their coursework in 10 months. For those students choosing part time (typically 1 class per 7-week term), the coursework can be completed in 20 months.
