Stack Your Teacher Master's Credentials
Your time is important and we know you want to get the most out of the graduate program you choose. So we've set up the online master's in Teaching & Leadership to give you the ability to earn credentials that enhance your teaching ability, help you earn more, and make the best use of your time while completing the program. Check out the many ways you can stack credentials while at UND.
Mastery Learning Graduate Certificate
Two-for-one stacked or stand-alone credential
Educators spend more than 1/3 of their time assessing and evaluating student work. Yet, there’s little to no university training on classroom assessment, grading, and reporting practices—leaving K-12 educators to figure this out on their own, until now.
Learn to effectively implement, coach, and lead mastery learning and fair and accurate grading practices in classrooms, schools, and districts, especially those exploring or involved in standards-based and formative feedback initiatives with this exclusive graduate certificate program.
Earn your master's degree and Mastery Learning graduate certificate at the same time, inside 30 total credits, affording you the ability to double your value to maximize your credentials and professional potential. Mastery Learning is also offered as a stand-alone certificate.

Three-for-one stacked credential
Looking to meet the requirements for dual credit secondary teaching? Within our master’s degree, you can earn the coursework required to teach dual credit courses in secondary classrooms in North Dakota and nationwide.
