Master's degrees and their corresponding licenses might be necessary for certain careers. They might also be the gateway between undergraduate and doctoral studies.

What is a Master in Secondary Education? These programs most often are designed to prepare prospective teachers to instruct students in post-elementary grades. This typically involves completing courses in a specialization, such as arts, music, mathematics, humanities or sciences, and developing knowledge in the entire range of subjects explored during secondary education. Courses in ethics, pedagogical theory, sociology and assessment science are also usually part and parcel of this master's degree. Students should expect to spend somewhere between two and four years before they are awarded a master's degree in secondary education.

Many institutions offer preparation for the licensing examinations of a specific jurisdiction, and some even incorporate such coursework into the program. In addition to licensing preparation, these programs often seek to provide their graduates with the skills and knowledge required to succeed as a teacher, such as effective lesson planning and accurate student evaluation.

Look to the admissions department of your chosen institution for an accurate and updated estimate of tuition costs. This is often the most reliable source of such information.

The primary goal of most participants in a secondary education master's program is to become a teacher. In most jurisdictions, this position requires an extensive process of education, internship and licensure before candidates are considered for a permanent position. There is sometimes a waiting period before a teacher becomes tenured through board review and approval. Teachers are usually responsible for developing and creating unique classwork based on educational theory and institutional learning goals. They are also often held to account for the success of students under their guidance. Teachers tend to engage in activities in addition to leading classrooms, such as advising student clubs or coaching athletic teams.

The right secondary education program is likely out there waiting for you. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
