Curriculum & Instruction (M.Ed.)
Three Ways to a Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction
|Professional Development||For working classroom teachers. Two years, part-time – 36 credits.|
|New Teacher as Leader||For recent graduates. One year full-time, intensive – 36 credits|
|Pre-approved Transfers||For certified teachers with 12-24 transfer credits from Granite State College. One year, part-time.|
Students in all programs are carefully matched with KSC faculty as they contribute to school-based projects related to curriculum, instruction, and leadership. Using research, assessment, diagnosis, and evaluation methodologies, these projects reflect school system interests and are tailored to meet the academic and professional goals of the master’s candidate.
Benefits of a Keene State M. Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction
- Convenient schedules for classroom teachers. Late afternoon, evening, and weekend classes. Summer courses can be part of week-long intensive institute or spread throughout the summer. Many courses have an on-line component.
- Choose and design projects to meet your specific professional goals. The program focuses on action research connected to individual scholarly and professional choices. Students are required to use the findings from their research to support a leadership initiative in a chosen area – for instance, grant writing, leading workshops, writing articles and presenting at professional conferences.
- An M.Ed. in two years. Working teachers can start in the summer term and complete a masters part-time in two years, including two summers – Professional Development program (link to PD page)
- An M.Ed. in one year. A full-time intensive – New Teacher as Leader – for those with no masters credits, and a part-time program – Pre-approved Transfer – for those with transfer credits. Start in July and finish the following June, just 12 months later. The intensive is ideal for current students or recent graduates in an educator preparation program in Early Childhood, Elementary, Special Ed, Secondary Education and K-12 Education (e.g. Art, Music, Physical Education, etc.). The part-time program is perfect for working, certified teachers.
- An exceptional tuition value. Tuition and fees competitive with and lower than surrounding schools with a minimal premium for non-residents. A highly regarded faculty holding classes in one of New Hampshire’s most comfortable, friendly, and exciting small cities.
- Individual Attention from admissions interview to graduation and beyond. We want to hear your unique story. Every applicant receives an interview, setting the tone for an educational relationship with faculty mentors who take explicit interest in their students’ goals and their self-expression. These mentorships continue as graduates enter the field.
