The Master of Education (MEd), a 30 credit hour program, has two specializations: Educational Leadership (EL) and Integrated Curriculum and Instruction (ICI). 


A low residency program, MEd faculty and students convene for three weeks each of three summers on Covenant's campus. Summer course work is supplemented by pre- and post-campus work. This schedule enables students to remain employed as teachers or administrators while enrolled in the Master of Education.
Pre-campus session: The pre-campus session begins with registration (February-April) and includes significant coursework within a variety of assignments: reading of texts and articles, writing, analysis, data gathering, and reflection. The intent of the pre-campus work is to give background to and prepare students for the on-campus session.
On-campus session: The on-campus session consists of one intensive week per course on campus, i.e. late June through mid-July. Classes meet 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
Post-campus session: Students return home for the post-campus session and complete remaining course work such as projects, exams, research, or papers applying what has been learned to their own school settings. This session concludes on February 1.
