Elementary Education (MEd)

The MEd in Elementary Education is designed for individuals looking to make a difference in the lives of children.

The program is designed for maximum flexibility to complete coursework on your schedule with courses offered in the evening using a hybrid format, allowing you to keep working while pursuing your degree.

In this program, you will focus on inclusive education and develop pedagogical and advocacy skills to promote equity and social justice for all learners in your classroom. Graduates receive a Professional Educator License (PEL) with elementary and ESL endorsements with the potential to add bilingual, learning behavior specialist (LBS1), and middle grades endorsements.

This program is designed for individuals seeking to secure an initial teaching license to teach in elementary schools, whether that be in general education, special education, or ESL and bilingual education. An integral component of our teacher preparation program is classroom experience where candidates engage directly with students and educators while developing their pedagogical expertise.
