A Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree provides intermediate-level graduate training which enhances professional knowledge and prepares students for further graduate study, if desired. Each specialty option has specific requirements in terms of courses, credit hours, internships, etc. Working closely with a faculty advisor, every M.Ed. Student undertakes individualized course of study, which culminates in a major project such as thesis, portfolio project, or an internship experience. Largely through valuable mentoring and networking, our graduates pursue careers in education administration, counseling, among other options. Read through each option to determine which pathway is the best fit for you.
