This graduate degree program is designed to prepare educators for a variety of professional positions in educational settings, including: school building level, school district level, vocational-technical school, community college, and university. Licensure as a teacher is not required for admission to the program (unless seeking the optional School Teacher Librarian endorsement). The candidate's bachelor's degree may be in any field.
The program is available in either the thesis or non-thesis option and requires a minimum of 33 hours.
All students completing the non-thesis option are required to, at the end of their program of study, submit a comprehensive electronic portfolio that is representative of their work, and a paper. The departmental graduate research requirement for a non-thesis option may be met in one of four paper formats:
- a literature review,
- original research,
- a graduate project,
- or a journal article.
Each of these options include a literature review. The final determination of the type of paper to be selected must be decided in consultation with the director(s) of the study.
Students completing the thesis option are required to pass an oral examination prepared and administered by the thesis committee. The examination will be comprehensive in nature and will normally accompany the thesis defense. For more information related to the thesis option please review the Graduate College resources
