The Master of Education Degree (M.Ed.) at Utah Valley University is an applied master’s program aimed at building the instructional skills and professional competency of teachers. The goal is to enable participants to become more proficient in selecting optimum research-based curriculum design strategies that best apply to specific teaching situations.
Core coursework in research, theory, and instructional models or ESL issues is required of all participants, however, students select an area of emphasis for their final instructional project according to their interest or area of licensure in K-12 education. The culminating project is unique to each student, but generally course work and many assignments are completed collaboratively as students work and grow together to pursue learning challenges.
Applications are now being accepted for Summer 2017 for the program. The application is open until the program is full.
