Overview

Two tracks are offered within the master’s degree program: the initial licensure track, and the provisional initial licensure track.

Initial Licensure Track

The initial licensure track in Education is for those who have a baccalaureate (BA, BS) degree from an accredited institution with a major in a subject area taught in secondary schools and who want to prepare to be teachers. This track leads to licensure in a teaching specialty. All courses are offered online or in the evening. Some courses require a field placement in a local school.

Title II definitions now require that program completers pass required assessments in addition to completion of the courses on the student’s degree plan. Students in the initial licensure track of the M.Ed. in Secondary Education are required to pass state required Praxis II assessments as of spring 2001.
