Master of Education (M.Ed.)
Mount Marty College's Master of Education degree with a concentration in Curriculum and Instruction is a 2-year degree program. It has been specifically and uniquely designed with the inservice teacher in mind, giving them the opportunity to complete a degree using their own classrooms. Based on enduring trends and current research, this program focuses on quality and effective teaching, arguably the most important variable affecting student achievement.
Utilizing a learning community model of instruction, this program draws from the professional knowledge and experiences of inservice teachers and professors. Through communal classroom experiences involving a confluence of theory and practice, the MEd program aims toward the enhancement of classroom practice.
Each of the core courses allows teachers to work with their peers and professors to develop action research projects to meet instructional needs unique to their classrooms. During the regular school year, in-service teachers work with practicum supervisors to implement these proposals toward completion, thus using data from one's own classroom to complete the program.
