The curriculum and instruction program leading to a Master of Education Degree (M.Ed.) is designed to further develop the skills of classroom teachers. Development of practical approaches to educational challenges is a major goal of the program.
Completion of thirty-six (36) semester hours at the graduate level is required for graduation. A core program, consisting of ten (10) courses and thirty (30) semester hours will be offered in sequence to cohorts of professionals. Up to six (6) semester hours of graduate courses in education may be transferred from regionally accredited institutions.
Courses may be used to renew an Indiana license. Professionalization of a license requires completion of the master\'s degree and semester hours in specific academic disciplines. Students should seek the counsel of their advisor if they are planning to professionalize their license.
The program is designed to provide maximum convenience to the student in that courses are scheduled on Saturdays, registration may be completed by mail, payment may be made with VISA and MasterCard, books will be delivered to the students, and extra charges, such as parking fees, will not be assessed. A four-hour seminar is held at the beginning of the program to introduce students to IWU and to give students an overall understanding of the Master of Education program.
