Curriculum and Instruction

You became a teacher to make a difference. You know the importance of the role you fill, but maybe your focus is changing. It’s expanding. Our degree program in Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum provides opportunities for career fulfillment (adding certifications or specializations to your existing repertoire) or career enhancement (specialization in one content area or advanced area that could lead to a career “upgrade” or change to a curriculum specialist).
