The Master of Education Degree (M.Ed.) at Utah Valley University is an applied master’s program aimed at building the instructional skills and professional competency of teachers. The goal is to enable participants to become more proficient in selecting optimum research-based curriculum design strategies that best apply to specific teaching situations.


Core coursework in research, theory, and instructional models or ESL issues is required of all participants, however, students select an area of emphasis for their final instructional project according to their interest or area of licensure in K-12 education. The culminating project is unique to each student, but generally course work and many assignments are completed collaboratively as students work and grow together to pursue learning challenges.


While the Master of Education degree program at Utah Valley University is designed primarily to enhance the skills and understandings of practicing classroom teachers, it also prepares these graduate students for expanded leadership roles at the school, district, or state level in delivering professional development, designing and evaluating curriculum and textbooks, and mentoring novice teachers. 

A Master of Education degree may also qualify a student as an instructor for teacher preparation courses in a community college or as an adjunct instructor at the undergraduate level in a four-year college or university. Successful completion of this master's degree also provides a valuable foundation for those students who choose to pursue a doctoral degree. Completed coursework in English as a Second Language, Elementary Mathematics, Educational Technology, and the Reading 1 options qualifies students for an endorsement to their existing Utah Teaching Certificate.
