Master of Education in Teaching & Learning

The Master of Education in Teaching and Learning is a 30-31 credit program designed for professionals seeking advanced studies in education. The program offers a selection of courses appropriate for individuals committed to reflecting on, refining, and enhancing professional practice. Culturally responsive education and applying that approach to the Alaskan context is emphasized, particularly with respect to Alaska Natives and students from diverse cultural backgrounds. Program will be planned with an advisor to allow concentrations in particular areas of interest (e.g., curriculum and teaching, teaching English language learners, leadership). Content areas (e.g., sciences) or professional fields outside P-12 schools may be available through collaboration with colleges outside the College of Education.
