The Master of Arts in Education, Curriculum & Instruction- Elementary is a 30-33 unit program designed to foster the development of educators who are caring, effective, reflective, and committed to improving their K-6 schools. Coursework prepares teachers to apply theoretical insights and research findings to the practical problems they encounter in their work in curriculum and instruction. In addition to preparing graduate students to make useful connections between theory, research, and practice, the program also sets the goal of strengthening students’ ability to effectively communicate their knowledge and understanding of current educational problems to diverse audiences (i.e., students, parents, colleagues, school and district administrators, and policymakers).
A program planner will be provided to each student upon admission. Each Fall and Spring semester, students typically enroll in 2 courses. Summer enrollment is optional; there is limited availability of summer courses. Curriculum & Instruction program courses are typically offered weeknights from 4:00-6:45PM or from 7:00-9:45PM, subject to change.
