Elementary Education M.Ed. with Endorsements
The Master of Education (M.Ed.) program in Elementary Education is a graduate degree designed for teachers who wish to pursue advanced preparation in a specific area at the elementary level, including mathematics, science, literacy, and teacher support and coaching endorsements.
The mathematics and science endorsements require one year teaching and for teachers who want the teacher support and coaching (TSC) endorsement three years of teaching experience is required. The M.Ed. program engages students in comprehensive exploration, research, and practice in diverse elementary classrooms, with concentrated study in their chosen endorsement.
Program experiences provide students with pedagogical content knowledge, instructional capabilities and mindsets needed to serve as effective teachers and also teacher leaders in their schools and communities.
The program includes 12 courses, five of which may be completed online/alternative format. Students may enter the program any semester and complete the program at their own pace. For endorsements requiring years of teaching, other courses in the program may be completed before then starting those courses.
The endorsement options may also be completed as standalone programs. If a student has already completed a M.Ed., there as opportunities for the endorsement courses to count toward other graduate degrees (e.g., Ed.D.)
Once students complete the required courses for their endorsement, they should submit the CEHD Endorsement Completion form here.
