Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction

Enhance Your Classroom Practice

Carroll University's Master of Education - Curriculum and Instruction program is designed for K-12 educators who wish to enhance their classroom practice. Certificate/license programs serve as areas of concentration when applied to a M.Ed. degree. Candidates can complete two certificate/license programs to meet the 33-credit requirement for a master degree in education. Alternately, candidates may choose to pair one concentration with the thesis track of core courses (EDU601, 602, 603). This option is recommended for candidates who may later pursue a terminal degree. Depending on which certificate/license programs are applied to the M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, candidates may need to enroll in elective courses to fulfill the 33-credit university requirement.
