Western New England University is known for providing professionally focused programs with a solid liberal arts background. Located in the heart of New England's Knowledge Corridor, home to 26 colleges and universities, the University was founded in 1919. Its mission then was to serve the needs of part-time adult learners. Nearly a century later that commitment to providing programs convenient to working adults continues through more than a dozen graduate programs, including online study in the Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction.
The online Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Curriculum and Instruction was designed to meet the growing needs of current educators for a program that is both competitive and unique while also responsive to current research in education.
Western New England University is regionally accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (209 Burlington Road, Bedford, MA 01730; 781-271-0022).
The School of Business is accredited by AACSB International. Western New England University is a member of the Association of American Colleges, the College Entrance Examination Board, the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, and the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Massachusetts.
