Master of Arts in Education / Curriculum Studies Program
The Master of Arts in Education Curriculum Studies (MAE) program provides students with a thorough understanding of the foundations of education. The program's rigorous, interdisciplinary coursework covers curriculum development, teaching practices, and program evaluation. Designed for experienced teachers, liberal arts degree holders who wish to explore education issues, and international students who plan to teach in their native countries, the MAE program does not satisfy requirements for a teaching license.
Candidates complete, within a 6-year period, a minimum of 30 semester hours of graduate courses in individual planned programs which include the following:
|Section||Required Coursework||Credit Hrs|
|Professional Education Coursework||
|Liberal Arts Coursework||
|EDUC-601||Teachers as Consumers of Research||
|EDUC-670||Introduction to Professional Inquiry||
|EDUC-671||The Scholarship of Teaching||
|EDUC-596||Education Research Project||
The capstone experience - a thesis and oral presentation - gives students the opportunity to synthesize their professional education, scholarly activities, and individual creativity.
