Currently there are seven emphases for participants: Applied Behavioral Analysis; Educational Technology, Elementary Mathematics; Elementary STEM, English as a Second Language (ESL), Reading I, and Teacher Leadership.
The Education - Educational Technology Emphasis degree at Utah Valley University emphasizes coursework that prepares teachers to become instructional leaders, with classes in advanced pedagogy, subject matter content, curriculum design, and assessment.
Core coursework in research methods is required of participants in all options, however, students select a topic for a culminating project according to their interest or area of licensure in K-12 education.
While the Master of Education degree program 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.
