Teaching/Thesis Track Master's
The program is designed to complement core proficiencies that are consistent across most National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) certificates. The goal of this program is to increase teachers' abilities to engage students in effective and efficient learning experiences that produce measurable gains in student achievement.
In the Thesis track students will select a program with a thesis that allows a student to explore an issue in depth through empirical research and will advance students toward doctoral study or they can select a specialization that will advance their practice.
Students are engaged in case-based and problem-based learning activities and assignments that require them to implement and integrate strategies and techniques within their own classroom and engage in inquiry that assesses the outcomes and effectiveness of their efforts.
This degree program is designed for licensed, practicing PreK-12 and early childhood educators who want to advance their knowledge and skills to improve their classroom practice and demonstrate their skill and qualifications as a master teacher or are seeking to advance their research skills as they study an area in the field of Education in depth.
