Master of Education in Teaching & Learning

The Master of Education in Teaching and Learning is designed for professionals seeking advanced studies in education. The program supports development of scholarly practitioners through coursework and a comprehensive portfolio, which includes an applied research project. Culturally responsive education and application of that approach in the Alaskan context is emphasized, particularly with respect to Alaska Native education and cultural and linguistic diversity. Programs will be planned with an advisor to allow concentrations in areas relevant to P-12 schools or other professional settings.

  • The M.Ed. Teaching and Learning is not an initial certification, advanced certification, or endorsement program.
  • The program can be completed via distance. However, some professional concentrations may include classes outside the School of Education that are not offered online. Contact advisor for more information.
