What is an MA in Secondary Education? People who pursue master's degrees in secondary education can expect to learn about a wide range of topics that relate to teaching young adults as they prepare for their tertiary education. Students learn about the influence of philosophy, history and sociology on educational theories. Other topics include common trends that affect professional educators, creating and maintaining quality learning environments, assessment and evaluation of students and curriculum planning. In addition, many programs teach students about local, state and country governments, adolescent development and psychology, adolescent literacy and foundations and methods for teaching language.

Students who decide to obtain master’s degrees in secondary education likely learn skills that will help them in many facets of their lives, such as finding gainful employment. These skills include organization, time management and planning.

Each country has its own laws regarding the cost of education, and each college or university chooses its own price. Other factors to consider regarding cost include whether the student qualifies for scholarships and how long the program runs.

For those who wish to teach, secondary education programs are the most versatile. Upon graduation, an individual may go on to teach young adults in secondary schools, especially if the education degree included a specific concentration such as mathematics or language. Other graduates might decide to teach students in middle grades, particularly if those students are advanced. Another option for graduates is to teach at community colleges or universities, which is often helpful for those pursuing doctoral degrees.

Many people who enter secondary education programs decide to learn via the Internet, but others may attend traditional classes in one of the schools offering such programs around the world. To get started, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The study program follows on from the bachelor's study program Music Education with a focus on education. The aim of the study program is to provide its graduates with a comprehensive master's degree, which will prepare them for the profession of music teacher at the 2nd level of primary and secondary schools. The study program takes into account the proportionality of the cognitive, didactic, and pedagogical-psychological components of the training, while the field knowledge gained in the bachelor's degree is further systematized and applied in the field of didactics and professional subjects closely related to it. Graduates of the study program are competent to independently create school educational programs in the educational field of Arts and Culture. They are ready to teach music education with all its aspects in the field of knowledge and skills. The study program builds on creative activities in the field of music education and its didactics. The field component is focused on a deeper understanding of music education issues, which is reflected in the teaching of music education in primary and secondary schools. Musical phenomena and concepts are presented in a broader context and relationships between different types of science and art. The music didactic component is based on the knowledge gained in music pedagogical research and on best practices verified in practice. The music theory and pedagogical component can then be deepened in a doctoral study program, e.g. Music Theory and Pedagogy. The study program in the major plan respects the balance of subject, didactic and pedagogical-psychological components of training according to the standards of teacher training of the Ministry of Education. Pedagogical-psychological training includes subjects of pedagogy, psychology, and special pedagogy, including pedagogical-psychological practice. -
