The program offers a selection of courses appropriate for individuals committed to reflecting on, refining and enhancing professional practice. Culturally responsive practice and applying that practice and theory to the Alaskan context is emphasized, particularly with respect to Alaska Native education. A comprehensive portfolio, as one element of the degree, is constructed throughout the program to document professional growth and reflective practice.

Candidates may also work with faculty to co-design a program that meets their professional needs.
