Be sure to read this overview and important information, including application information, about outcomes for graduate students in the master of curriculum and instruction degree program.
CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION (M.ED.)
The curriculum and instruction master's program may be completed either online or blended with courses on campus.
Important: Some of the coursework for Washington state's professional certification may be completed at SPU and count toward the M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction. The only planning requirement is that no more than two courses (6 credits) can be at the 5000 level.
Due to the focus of the curriculum and instruction degree on the K–12 school system, it is preferred that each applicant has completed an approved program for teacher certification prior to enrollment. Exceptions will be considered by the Curriculum and Instruction program chairperson.
Portfolio and Comprehensive Exam
In addition to course requirements, students are required to create a portfolio over the course of their program and complete a comprehensive examination. However, these requirements will be integrated into students' coursework as much as possible.
