Teachers learn to deliberate, from different perspectives, on historical controversies that continue to shape debates about educational purposes, content, and pedagogies. They develop detailed unit plans for their own classrooms that support the learning of academically, culturally, and linguistically diverse students, using the understanding by design model.
“The Teacher Education Master's program gives students the opportunity to get practical experience alongside a theoretical component. With the knowledge and insight that I have gained I feel as prepared as possible. After a long day is done these classes still provide a space to reflect on the theory, on the profession, on our values and on the meaning of education.” – Kathryn Marcouiller, Teaching MA - Single Subject Credential

In order to offset the cost of graduate education tuition, many School of Education courses are offered in the late afternoon and evening, and/or on alternating weekends. Most students find they can maintain a full time job while earning their credential, master’s or doctoral degree. However, if your program requires you to spend time in a classroom (i.e. student teaching) or to complete a fieldwork or traineeship experience, such commitments will interfere with a normal workday.
