Master of Science in Education in Curriculum and Instruction

Master of Science in Education in Curriculum and Instruction

Programs in Curriculum and Instruction prepare students to complete advanced degrees by addressing critical issues in learning, teaching, and curriculum, from local to global levels.

The Master of Science in Education candidate completes graduate courses in Curriculum and Instruction.  This provides the candidate an opportunity to:

  • Develop a thorough understanding of the relationship of content and content-specific pedagogy

  • Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the content that they plan to teach and provide multiple explanations and instructional strategies so that all students learn

  • Apply the ability to critique research and theories related to pedagogy and learning

  • Convey an in-depth knowledge of research-based instructional strategies and technologies that help all students learn. 

The culminating experience for completion of the Master of Science in Education degree is the Master's Project as a portfolio. The portfolio will be a collection of artifacts completed during courses in the program along with documentation of other activities exemplifying the degree learning outcomes.
