MAED in Educational Studies

The graduate track in Educational Studies is designed for individuals who want to continue developing their professional commitment and competence in a non-school related setting where a Masters degree may be desirable or required. Graduate students in the program examine current educational theory and practice and explore a variety of viewpoints to reflectively develop their professional competence and leadership style. They explore social issues affecting teaching, and expand their awareness of and respect for the unique development of education for adults and other learners. During their course work, they consider effective collaboration with and accountability to students, colleagues, and the community. Reexamining the development of values and professional ethics, candidates in this program gain greater intellectual and ethical insight.
