The Master of Elementary Education Online is a non-licensure track degree program for teachers who already have elementary or other teaching certification and are in teaching positions. It is specifically designed to help elementary teachers enhance their instructional and research skills and increase their students’ learning outcomes. The M. Ed in Elementary Education program is accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
Courses focus on foundations, resources, and methods to provide the busy education professional with useful and timely approaches to improving teaching and assessment methods. The first courses in the program will be offered in Fall, 2007. The program will offer two courses per semester for two years, including summers, for a total of 36 credits. Unlike other M. Ed. programs, there will be a standard set of required courses; there will be no electives. However, students who wish to take an alternate course for certain required courses can contact the Program Coordinator to request substituting a face-to-face course for an online course.
