Post-Bachelor's Initial Teacher Certification Only

We also offer a certification-only option if you have your undergraduate degree and wish to just pursue your teaching certification.

Our M.Ed. in Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum is designed to provide enhanced knowledge to classroom teachers who wish to be more fluent with best practices and those who aspire to leadership positions within their schools or district.

Educational Administration

Our M.Ed. in Educational Administration is designed to develop school and district leaders who are student-centered, knowledgeable about curriculum and policies, and capable of mentoring teachers and students to maximize potential and meet the needs of a dynamic school environment.

If you already have a graduate degree, we offer certification-only programs for both principals and superintendents.

Special Education 

Our M.Ed. in Special Education is designed to build special educators’ fluency with empirically-supported practices and how those practices can be applied to meet the needs of all learners in a classroom.  We offer a stand-alone M.Ed. and an M.Ed + Educational Diagnostician certification program, which prepares special educators to further serve the field as diagnosticians who assess and find appropriate interventions to meet learners’ educational and behavioral needs.
