The Master of Science in Education (MSE) program and its curriculum are designed to provide experienced K-12 educators, both practicing and nonpracticing, with the knowledge and experience to meet nationally recognized standards.
This graduate-level program is NOT an introductory program to teaching. It has been specifically created for experienced educators who want to continue on their journey as highly effective teachers and build personal and professional skills. It is also intended for individuals who want to pursue career advancement in areas such as leadership, professional development, or mentoring. All coursework contains job-embedded assignments and, therefore, requires candidates to teach a consistent group of learners.
Candidates are taught to consider how to most effectively promote student learning and development and school achievement, and demonstrate their understanding of the program's four knowledge goals: diverse learners, academic content and pedagogy, assessment, and professional responsibilities and relationships. The program is also designed to help candidates become proficient in five program competencies (outcomes), which are based upon national and professional standards for practicing teachers.
