Education Graduate Programs

 

Master of Education

Program Description

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree at Utah Valley University is an applied master's degree aimed at building the instructional skill and professional competency of teachers, clinicians  and administrative leaders in K-12 and higher education. The goal is to enable participants to become more proficient in selecting optimum, research-based, curriculum design strategies that best apply to specific teaching situations.

There are currently ten emphases in the Master of Education Degree:

  • Applied Behavioral Analysis
  • Educational Leadership
  • Educational Technology
  • Elementary Mathematics
  • Elementary STEM
  • English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • Higher Education Leadership
  • Reading I
  • Secondary Teaching
  • Teacher Leadership

The M.Ed. requires 30-33 semester hours of graduate course work and completion of a culminating applied instructional project tailored to the particular interests of program participants. Participants enter the M.Ed. program in cohorts and progress through the degree program in a group. While the culminating applied instructional project is unique to each student, some course work and many class activities are done in collaboration with fellow students.

Careers

While the Master of Education degree program is designed primarily to enhance the skills and understandings of practicing classroom teachers, it also prepares these graduate students for expanded leadership roles at the school, district, or state level in delivering professional development, designing and evaluating curriculum and textbooks, and mentoring novice teachers. A Master of Education degree may also qualify a student as an instructor for teacher preparation courses in a community college or as an adjunct instructor at the undergraduate level in a four-year college or university. Successful completion of this master's degree also provides a valuable foundation for those students who choose to pursue a doctoral degree. Completed coursework in English as a Second Language, Elementary Mathematics, Educational Technology, and the Reading 1 options qualifies students for an endorsement to their existing Utah Teaching Certificate. 2020欧洲杯夺冠热门
