There are six seven-week sessions offered each academic year. You may begin at the start of any session. We offer courses in seven-week formats. Seven-week classes meet two evenings a week or a full-day on Saturdays. Many classes are hybrid or partially consisting of online meetings. An accelerated schedule with blended formats, including week-long classes, is offered in the summer.
Note: The M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction program does not provide Pennsylvania Instructional I teaching certification. Teachers must apply for certification through the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
The M. Ed. is 30 credits and includes a master's paper. You may take up to 9 credits on a nondegree basis which can be transferred into the degree.
You will need to meet with your academic adviser to plan course selections.
