The Master of Arts in Education provides candidates the opportunity to pursue a rigorous interdisciplinary study of the foundations of education. This advanced degree is suited for anyone interested in developing expertise in curriculum development, teaching practices and program evaluation.

The program is available from our campuses in Forest Grove and Eugene. Many MAE courses are available in summer, evening and weekends. Candidates may enroll in upper-division undergraduate courses if instructors agree to offer the courses for graduate credit.

Upon admission, candidates meet with a faculty adviser to individualize their program of study.

The program culminates in a research project through which candidates explore an essential question identified through their course of study. This project is guided by a university faculty mentor. Candidates publicly present their findings.
