The Master of Arts in Education is a 36-hour, non-thesis program with 18 hours in Education and 18 hours in a teaching specialization.
Teaching field concentrations are available in Computer Science, English Literature and Language, Political Science, and International Relations.
Courses foster an integration of knowledge and disciplinary specialization with academic exposure outside of education as an integral part of the program. This holistic rationale is an approach to education that emphasizes the teacher being truly present to students and also teaching, loving and respecting them.
Such teachers expect competence and compassion of their students, a solid grasp of subject matter, and a living awareness of the inescapably moral and spiritual dimension of education and life. Accordingly, this program emphasizes a total view of curriculum and instruction, one that promotes ethics, service, learner-centered philosophy, uniqueness of the individual, and application of theory into practice in the school setting.
