About

The Master of Education in Teaching (MEdT) program at University of Hawaii at Manoa is a two-year, field-based program designed for those pursuing careers in teaching who have earned baccalaureate degrees in fields other than education.

Overview

Upon successful completion of this degree and submission of passing scores for the appropriate licensing tests, you will be recommended for initial teacher licensure to the Hawaii Teachers Standards Board (HTSB) to teach elementary (K-6), secondary (6-12), or Hawaiian Language Immersion (K-12) in a general education classroom.

Programs offered at the secondary level are: English, Hawaiian Language, Mathematics, Science, or Social Studies. Candidates wanting to pursue other secondary areas should contact the program.

The MEdT program is field-based with candidates beginning field experiences in schools during their first semester of the program. 

Candidates will complete two semesters of field experience, followed by a semester of full-time student teaching and an additional semester of full-time internship/employment.

Field experiences (practicum & residency) will be completed at an assigned Teaching partner school on the island they reside. 

Candidates may not choose the location or grade level of their placement and must be willing to cover all transportation costs to the assigned school sites anywhere on the island.
