Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction

Preparation for teaching leadership

The best teachers never stop learning. From the latest research to peer evaluation to curriculum design, the Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction will prepare you for leadership roles in the classroom.

Two concentrations are available for the MEd in Curriculum and Instruction degree: Teacher as Leader or TESOL (with ESL endorsement). The Teacher as Leader concentration is designed to fulfill the educational requirements for the Instructional Facilitator endorsement, and will help prepare you for a variety of leadership roles in the classroom. The TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) concentration is designed for those who desire to not only earn a master's degree, but also wish to earn an ESL endorsement from the Arkansas Department of Education.

Master of Education classes are held in the evening so you can continue to teach full-time and complete your master’s degree.

Students must hold a valid teaching license in order to be admitted into the M.Ed. program. If you are seeking a teaching license, consider JBU's M.A.T. in Secondary Education program.

 

3 reasons to get a MEd at JBU:

  • Experienced faculty – At JBU, you’ll learn from men and women who have extensive academic training and classroom experience.
  • Education beyond the classroom – Because K-12 students aren’t “one size fits all,” neither are your opportunities as a Master of Education student. Rich experiences like international trips to Ireland or Guatemala help you to expand your context and consider education in a different light.
  • Unique focus on Christian values – At JBU, we believe in education of the whole person – head, heart, hand. All of our courses are taught from a Christian worldview, with faculty who are committed to the academic and spiritual growth of our students.
