UNIfied Master's Degree

In cooperation with UNI Continuing Education, the Department of Curriculum & Instruction offers five of its master's degree programs primarily off campus via interactive video conferencing technologies and online via eLearning. These programs can meet the state of Iowa's individual professional development plan requirement. Students specialize in one of the following areas and work through their program of study in cohorts.



The Department of Curriculum and Instruction is currently (beginning May 2011) not enrolling new students into the Master's programs in Education of the Gifted and Middle Level Education. However, students who are currently in progress in these programs will be able to complete their degrees. Current budget constraints require faculty who usually teach in these master's programs to teach in other programs to replace faculty lost through retirement. Hopefully, this restriction is temporary and we will again be able to offer these Master's programs in the future as the budget situation improves.
