The McKendree University Master of Arts in Education (MAED) program focuses on real
world educational activities which allow students to develop problem solving and team
building skills in a collaborative environment. MAED P-12 courses help teachers meet
their state mandated recertification requirements and, for some, achieve additional endorsements
in principalship, driver’s education, special education, middle school, or reading
teacher. Course work provides non-tenured teachers the opportunity to move from the
initial to the standard certificate in the state of Illinois. The MAED P-12 degree
also enables teacher candidates to increase their own salary potential as they move
across the salary schedule. For working professionals, not currently certified in
the State of Illinois, the MAED offers numerous tracks to initial teacher certification.
Elementary, Secondary, and Special Education certification are available through the
master's program. 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.
McKendree University offers MAED courses 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.
