About the Curriculum and Instruction M.Ed. Program

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Curriculum and Instruction is an online graduate program for classroom teachers intending to improve their pedagogy or assume leadership positions*. 

Key features of the M.Ed. program include:

  • Choice: Working with a faculty advisor, every M.Ed. student undertakes an individualized course of study that includes an "area of emphasis," which culminates in a meaningful Master's project or thesis.
  • Flexibility: M.Ed. students progress through the program at a pace that meets their needs.
  • Value: Earn your Master's degree from a quality program while at affordable tuition.

Design a Program that Meets Your Needs

The M.Ed. program is 48 credits. Within the program, M.Ed. students select 29 credits in an area of emphasis to meet their professional goals. Plus, many areas of emphasis, with advising, may lead to WA State teaching endorsements (noted with * below). In other words, you can earn your Master's degree and an endorsement. Here are potential areas of emphasis:
