Master of Education

Program Description

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree at Utah Valley University is an applied master's degree aimed at building the instructional skill 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.

There are currently seven emphases in the Master of Education Degree:

  • Applied Behavioral Analysis
  • Educational Technology
  • Elementary Mathematics
  • Elementary STEM
  • English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • Reading I
  • Secondary Teaching
  • Teacher Leadership

The M.Ed. requires 30-33 semester hours of graduate course work and completion of a culminating applied instructional project tailored to the particular interests of program participants. Participants enter the M.Ed. program in cohorts and progress through the degree program in a group. While the culminating applied instructional project is unique to each student, some course work and many class activities are done in collaboration with fellow students.

  Graduate Certificate in Secondary Teaching

The Graduate Certificate in Secondary Teaching is designed for individuals who would like to receive a Utah Secondary Teaching License, and have earned a bachelor’s degree in one of the teaching major subject areas for secondary education approved by the Utah State Board of Education. This program will include the basic coursework and field experiences required of all teacher candidates for an initial teaching license, ensuring that competencies in both subject knowledge and pedagogy are met.

Admission & Retention
