Overview

The MEd-CS equips teachers to fill a variety of teaching and resource roles at an advanced level. The program also prepares students for doctoral programs and other advanced study options. It does NOT lead to teacher licensure, however. Three MEd-CS concentrations are eligible to add-a-field to a Hawai‘i teacher license: Literacy Specialist, Reading, and Teacher Leader. A Literacy Leader Graduate Certificate and college-endorsed Teacher Leader Certificate (graduate certficate in progress) are also available.

  • Develop well-informed and reflective practitioners;
