About

The online Master of Education in Elementary Education from the University of Pittsburgh is a professional degree for graduate students who want to enhance their ability to meet the needs of diverse learners in their classrooms, as well as broaden their understanding of educational theories and research as they apply to practice and policy. 

Overview

Candidates will take a range of classes that provide them with ongoing professional learning that is both practice-based and theoretically robust. In addition, candidates will learn how to design and enact classroom research within their own contexts. T

This is a 36-credit Elementary Education program; however, those students who received their teaching certificate from the University of Pittsburgh will be admitted to the program with advanced standing. 

These students will need to take only 18 additional credits and will use 18 credits from their graduate certification program to complete the 36-credit requirement. Similarly, if a student completed a graduate education program at another university, he/she will be granted up to 12 advanced credits. These courses will be transferred into the program and an additional 24 credits will be completed at the University of Pittsburgh.
