Graduate Education Programs

The McKendree University Graduate Education programs focus on real world educational activities which allow students to develop problem solving and team building skills in a collaborative environment. The courses help teachers meet their state mandated licensure requirements and, for some, achieve additional endorsements in principalship, special education, middle school, or reading teacher. For working professionals, not currently licensed in the State of Illinois, the MAED & MAT offers numerous tracks to initial teacher licensure. The MAED in Higher Education Administrative Services program is for those seeking to accelerate their career path in higher education or for those wanting to transition from another profession.

Courses are offered on the Lebanon campus, online, and at off-campus sites throughout the state of Illinois. See locations for a specific program at the links below.
