College of Education

Advanced Instruction (M.Ed., Ed.D. and Ph.D.)

For professional educators who are already licensed, the advanced master's programs generally lead to additional teacher licensers, and the doctoral programs prepare students to enter academia and advance the fields of teacher education through promising research.

Early Childhood

The College of Education offers two tracks for students wanting advanced professional studies in early childhood education, with an emphasis on social justice and equity. The Ph.D. program is for those who have already attained a master's degree and would like to focus on research. The master's (M.Ed.) program is for practitioners who hold a current teaching license. The M.Ed. will begin admitting students to the program in Fall 2016. 

Language and Literacy

Our language and literacy academic areas focus on research-based practices and inquiry learning so that teachers can meet the needs of the state's diverse learners. The master's program is geared to teaching practitioners while the doctoral program is research-based and prepares students for academia.

Teaching and Learning

The master's and doctoral programs in teaching and learning prepare students with a deeper knowledge of and insights into curriculum models, educational programs, curriculum standards, human growth and development and learning theories that apply to grades 2-12.
