The Master of Education (M.Ed.) program in Advanced Studies is designed for experienced teachers and other educational professionals. In the state of Ohio, a master’s degree is required for teacher’s advancement to the Senior Professional License.
The specialized sequence is an opportunity to self-design a program of study in consultation with an advisor that meets current professional needs.
A sequence of courses may be taken in a teaching field, e.g., English, or in education or counseling, wherein a number of specializations are possible. Each program is a minimum of 30 hours.
Specialized Sequence: four courses from a specific area of interest (e.g., counseling, history, language) planned in consultation with the academic advisor and approved through petition by the department chair and the Office of Graduate Studies
Some sequences provide opportunity for elective coursework. Candidates may choose any appropriate 400- or 500-level education, counseling, or other academic course as an elective with approval from the advisor or the department chair. If a 400-level course is used in a degree program, a grade of B or higher is required.
