Learning, Teaching, & Curriculum

Graduate study in Learning, Teaching, & Curriculum prepares teachers, curriculum leaders and teacher educators for professional excellence. With the rapid changes in education--especially developments in  instructional materials and techniques, curriculum construction and classroom organization — teachers who have completed their certification may need to update, refine and extend their knowledge and skills.

Further, many educators enter new roles as subject-matter specialists, curriculum coordinators, supervisors of instruction, department heads, leaders of professional development education or teacher educators. Graduate programs in Learning, Teaching, & Curriculum are designed to prepare the professionals for these new roles.

Areas of study

Majors can elect an area of concentration in curriculum development and research, or teacher education. Concentration areas in disciplines outside professional education, such as economics, management, science, mathematics, English and sociology, also may be chosen.
