About

The Secondary Education program at University of Nevada, Reno is designed for individuals who have earned a bachelor’s degree at an accredited institution and who want to combine teacher licensure at the 7-12 level with a Masters in Education.

Overview

High-Impact Master's Education

The Secondary Education program at University of Nevada, Reno offers teacher candidates an opportunity to complete a course of study in secondary school (middle/high school) programs to become highly qualified in their licensure area.

Why a Master of Secondary Education?

The Master’s Degrees in Secondary Education (M.Ed.) offers teacher candidates an opportunity to complete a course of study in secondary programs to become highly qualified in their licensure area.

For students who are not licensed Nevada teachers, licensure courses may be taken as part of a master’s degree. Several areas of emphasis are available within each.  Students enrolled in the Washoe County School District Alternative Route to Licensure (WCSD ARL) strand of this program must work toward licensure in a content area that is approved by the WCSD ARL at the time of their enrollment into the M.Ed. program.

It is possible, upon admission to a post-baccalaureate licensure program (in secondary education), to concurrently pursue a graduate certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language.
