M.A. and Ed.M.

The curriculum and instruction specialization offers graduate study at the master’s degree level.  The specialization offers students rigorous and individually tailored programs of study.  The M.A. and Ed.M. degree programs are designed for students with bachelor degrees who have an interest in deepening their knowledge in a specific content area (in or outside the College of Education) as well as educational research in curriculum and instruction.  The specialization emphasizes applying research, theory, and evidence-based practices to improve education and is designed especially for secondary teachers who wish to take courses in their teaching field as well as advanced coursework in teaching and learning including two research courses.

They said it…

“I wanted to share I was recognized by Alabama’s School Counseling Association as the elementary counselor of the year. In my application, I wrote a lot about the national board process and how much it stretched me as a counselor. I contribute so much of that to you and how hard you pushed us to THINK.”

— Elizabeth Shaddix, in an email to Jane Oczkewicz, our National Board facilitator for ECYA COunseling


Graduate Students

For admission into a graduate program, graduate students must apply to both the WSU Graduate School (university) and the College of Education’s Office of Graduate Education (that’s us).
