Program Goals

The MEd in Educational Studies Program supports the college’s mission as it relates to advancing scholarship in multiple disciplines and promoting student career goals.

The program's primary goals include:

  • Enabling those individuals starting a graduate program to choose courses from multiple disciplines in order to design a program that will best serve their professional development needs
  • Providing content knowledge and skills to elementary classroom teachers who want to stay in the classroom and increase their teaching capabilities
  • Enhancing instructional knowledge and skills of employees in organizations and agencies who are responsible for implementing training programs and for teaching opportunities in non-school environments
  • Enabling students who previously started another area of study to apply their coursework to a more broad-based program that will help them to complement some or all of their coursework with courses selected from other disciplines
