The Master of Arts degree in Education is designed for experienced educators who are interested in enhancing their professional practice through online study of advanced professional knowledge related to teaching, learning, and leadership in K-12 schools. Through elective sequences of learning opportunities, students will develop one or two concentrations that focus on selected areas such as special education, technology and learning, school leadership, literacy education, and science and mathematics education. The program provides optimum flexibility for students who wish to engage in inquiry and learning that will contribute to exemplary educational practice. The College of Education has not determined whether the Master of Arts Degree in Education (MAED) online program satisfies licensure, endorsement, or certification requirements in all states. Licensure and certification is regulated individually by states and no two are exactly alike. Some states have different levels of licensure and/or certification requirements. For example, in Michigan, the MAED online program alone does not lead to State of Michigan endorsement or initial teacher certification. Students who wish to use this program for renewal, endorsement, or certification in their home state should contact their bachelor’s certification institution or their home state department of education for applicable requirements, rules, and regulations of their home state. Students are responsible for determining whether the MAED online program will meet their home states’ requirements for certification, licensure, or otherwise advancing a student’s teaching credentials. The program is available only online and only under Plan B (without thesis). The student must complete a total of 30 credits distributed as follows: Completion of 9 credits of core requirements in educational autobiography and inquiry, issues in educational practice, and a capstone-synthesis course. A list of available courses can be obtained from the student's academic advisor; Completion of a minimum of 9 credits in an area of concentration selected from such fields of study as special education, technology and learning, school leadership, literacy education, and science and mathematics education; Completion of a minimum of 9 additional credits in a second area of concentration or in areas approved by the student's academic advisor; A minimum of 3 credits in electives approved by the student's academic advisor; Successful completion and exhibition of an on-line portfolio.
