Master of Education: Advanced Studies in Secondary Education and Teacher Leadership - Credits: 30 (program code: 0972)

Program Description

Advanced studies in secondary education and teacher leadership is a graduate program for middle and high school teachers. The 30-credit Master of Education degree program is aligned with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) and the national board certification process. In less than two years, students can earn a master's degree while becoming well informed about the national board certification process. The courses and activities use data from teachers' own practices to reflect on their work and the work of their students to develop a deeper understanding of student learning. At the completion of this program, graduates will have a "jump start" if they decide to apply for national board teaching certification.
