Our M.S. offers two tracks. The Track 1 program is for students who have a degree in education with a teaching license. This track allows first-year teachers to earn a master's while getting expert mentoring support through our Resident Teacher Program. The Track 2 program is designed for students who have an earned bachelor’s degree with a major or minor in a licensable content area (English, reading and language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages, music visual arts, history, civics and government, geography, and economics are considered core academic subjects) and are seeking initial licensure at the graduate level.
