Davenport University’s Master of Urban Education program prepares and develops teachers in real world settings to meet the education demands of urban environments. This innovative teacher-training program focuses on student learning, prepares content experts in clinical settings and measures progress based on data. 


Candidates will also use the latest technological teaching tools to advance student learning and the teaching practice. Those who complete this 36-credit program shall receive a general, non-licensure master’s degree. Teachers who meet and/or exceed practice competencies will have the option of taking three additional credits towards an add-on certificate in teaching. Visit our webpage for more information on our Certificate in Urban Education.

By giving students “on the job” learning experiences, students can determine if teaching is a viable career choice. Likewise, the principal and district can see the talent they would want to hire. In addition, candidates will be assessed on their abilities to perform the skills they learn. Not all educational roads lead through teaching. By separating the degree from the certificate, the university can realize a greater degree of accountability for finding suitable placements for candidates.  If you are considering a non-teaching role in the field of education, consider or Masters of Urban Educational Leadership program.

The Master of Education in Urban Education is an alternate route, certification program that awards successful completers with a Master of Education and teacher certification in Math, English or Integrated Science. This alternate route/degree program allows individuals to teach in Michigan schools while fulfilling credential requirements. Davenport’s innovative approach to teacher training immerses a cohort of prospective teachers in a school for an academic year. Teachers in training are paired with a master teacher from the school. The coursework is delivered during the school day or online by faculty whose offices are in the school building. Faculty members provide immediate feedback through their assessments on the skills that matter most in effective teaching. Davenport’s program provides more time in the actual school setting so that prospective teachers develop the relationships and skills that are conducive for effective teaching.
