Graduate Programs in Curriculum and Instruction

Masters Program

The Master's Degree in Curriculum & Instruction has been completely redesigned to provide cutting edge professional development for educators from diverse professional backgrounds. We have created three new options within the C&I Master’s Degree to better meet the needs of both K-12 teachers and educational researchers. They include:

As you look over our new C&I options, you will find that the graduate faculty are committed to offering multiple avenues for students to fulfill their goals and expectations for advanced study in teaching, learning, and curriculum design. The program provides academic preparation for educators who seek higher education in order to become master teachers, scholars, researchers, or curriculum coordinators in schools, districts, and other educational agencies. The program is structured to allow full-time working professionals to continue their jobs while working toward an advanced degree.
