With a master's in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Kansas School of Education and Human Sciences, you'll learn to develop more effective instructional approaches, evaluate how well your students are learning, and integrate new technology and teaching strategies into the classroom.


While it may be easy to view your teaching skills as the single most significant determinant of your students’ classroom success, the curriculum you construct and use can have a profound effect on your students' lives as well: Evidence indicates that completing a more challenging high school curriculum can help students overcome even socioeconomic disadvantages.1 By developing your strengths as an instructor and learning to build a stronger curriculum, you can give your students the best possible advantage.

Challenge yourself to become a better educator, leader or administrator.

The University of Kansas School of Education and Human Sciences offers online master's programs that pair the academic rigor of a highly respected university with a flexible schedule to accommodate your busy life.

The online curriculum and instruction master's program blends the latest theories with practical, hands-on implementation. A practitioner-focused approach means everything you learn can be applied directly to your own classroom. Ultimately, you'll improve not only your own curriculum development skills but also the educational experience for the students whose lives you touch, whether they make up an individual class or an entire school or district.
