Master of Education Degree Concentrations

This unique program allows educators to choose what programs will best serve their professional learning needs. Customize your path to earning your M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction degree by choosing two of these certificate/license programs:

Reading Teacher License

The reading teacher program offers a supportive and interactive environment for current classroom teachers to broaden their understanding and skills related to research-based reading assessment, evaluation and instruction. Successful completion of this 15-credit program and the Foundations of Reading exam lead to a Wisconsin Reading Teacher License.

Reading Specialist License

The reading specialist program at Carroll University extends the reading teacher license for educators wishing to pursue additional expertise in literacy assessment, instruction and leadership. The program reflects the Wisconsin Administrator (WA) and the International Literacy Association (ILA) Standards and leads to the credentials for an administrative license.

Elementary Mathematics Certificate

The elementary mathematics concentration is a 5-course certificate program for the development of elementary mathematics specialists. Candidates acquire the habits of mind of a mathematical thinker and use mathematical practices to improve instruction in the elementary classroom. The program enhances content knowledge for effective teachers in numbers and operations, algebraic thinking, measurement and data and geometry.

English as a Second Language License

The English as a second language program can be taken as a stand-alone five course program leading to DPI #1395 or combined with another certificate/license program for the Master of Education degree.

Teacher Leader Certificate

The Teacher Leader Certificate prepares exemplary educators, with a dedication for transformational leadership, agency and learning. There are many educators who want to hold leadership positions within their buildings in ways that are closely connected with student and teacher learning. Possible candidates for this program include those seeking building leadership, coaching, or mentoring roles outside the realm or scope of a principalship or district administrator.

Advanced Studies in Personalized Learning Certificate Program
