What We Offer
With a focus on inquiry, the Master of Education in Teaching (MEdT) program delivers practical, hands-on, field-based programs. We offer two tracks:
- A 46-credit licensure track for those pursuing careers in teaching who have earned baccalaureate degrees in fields other than education.
- A 46-credit licensure track dual licensure program in Secondary & Special Education for those pursuing careers in teaching who have earned baccalaureate degrees in fields other than education.
