Clarkson University is now offering a fully online Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction. As a fully online program that can be completed in two to three years, the Curriculum and Instruction program was designed with working teachers in mind.


Educating our nation's youth is one of the most critical and rewarding jobs available today. The number of teachers required to meet the need of our growing population is projected to increase through 2030, with many positions requiring a master's degree completion within five years. New York may need to hire 180,000 new teachers by 2027, predicts former SUNY Chancellor Emeritus Nancy Zimpher. This looming teacher shortage is expected to impact urban and rural school districts, and foreign languages and STEM subjects the most. 

Students can also consider starting with the Curriculum and Instruction advanced certificate program before advancing to the master's program.
