The MEd in Education is designed for teachers holding an Instructional I or II certificate (or the equivalent if certified to teach in a state other than Pennsylvania). Throughout the program, continued emphasis is placed on the examination of your own attitudes and values, so that you can more effectively interface with a changing society.

Take all courses with your classmates as a cohort, progressing through the entire sequence of classes together. You will take one six-credit course per semester for a total of six semesters and complete your program in two years. Courses offered during the fall and spring semesters meet one night per week from 5:15–8:45 p.m. Summer classes meet two nights per week during a five-week period.
