Master of Education

Whether you’re already a teacher or looking to enter the field, the Master of Education degree can turn your passion for education into a rewarding career.

Emmanuel’s Master of Education (MEd) degree focuses on urban education and culturally responsive teaching to give you the content knowledge and pedagogical skills to teach in public and private school systems.

The program offers initial licensure in the fields of elementary teaching (grades 1-6) and middle/secondary teaching (grades 5-8 or 8-12) for biology, English language arts, history, mathematics and Spanish. The option for an additional endorsement in Teaching Students with Moderate Learning Disabilities is also available.

The Master of Education in Urban Education is framed around six key performance areas and learning goals:

  • Learning and creating learning communities
  • Curriculum planning and assessment of learning
  • Teaching all students
  • Engaging families and communities
  • Promoting access, equity and education
  • Developing professional culture, ethics and leadership

Evening courses are designed to accommodate working professionals and motivated students can complete the program in 12 months. Both the elementary and secondary teaching programs require 10 courses and two practicum experiences.
