M.A.Ed. Elementary Education

The Department of Elementary Education offers the M.A.Ed. degree in Elementary Education.


The master’s degree in elementary education is designed for experienced, practicing teachers who are seeking an “M” license and/or planning to apply for National Board Certification.  The master’s program extends the theoretical and pedagogical foundations acquired during undergraduate study and builds on the competence acquired by the career teacher through years of practice.  Teachers must hold a Standard Professional I license or be eligible to hold a Standard Professional I license at the time of application. Two years full-time teaching experience is recommended but not required. 


The mission of the master’s program in elementary education is to prepare the experienced teacher for full participation in the profession as leader, researcher, and master practitioner.  The master’s program is designed to promote both teacher autonomy and interdependence through inquiry, reflection, and action.  Teachers and teacher educators are encouraged to collaborate on ways to enhance the professional lives of teachers, the learning and well-being of their students, the teaching and learning environments of their schools, and partnerships with parents and families.
