The program for the Master of Education in Elementary Education builds on the most current body of knowledge of best practice and practical expertise (theory and practice) relevant to teaching grades K-6.  The program is designed for candidates who have a baccalaureate teaching license or who will receive a teaching license before the end of the first term of graduate enrollment. The program requires comprehensive examinations and 36 hours (i.e., professional core, literacy or content-based instructional courses, and a capstone thesis, product of learning, or practicum experience). Candidates may select from  three concentrations of specialized study which include the Content Concentration (18 hours of instruction courses in the content area of science, mathematics, social studies and language arts), the Literacy Concentration (18 hours of coursework in reading and literacy instruction) or the STEM Concentration (18 hours of coursework in science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
