This flexible 30-hour degree program provides a comprehensive professional development options for current preK-12 teachers. In order to address the ever-changing and complex challenges faced by today's teachers, teachers and faculty advisors work together to customize programs of study to meet individual needs and professional goals.
After you are admitted to the program, work with your advisor to select classes tailored to your interests in your chosen area of study. The result can be a degree that matters to you, your school, and your community, encompassing a set of core program beliefs.
Note: Students in the former program working towards a master’s in Early Childhood, Elementary Teaching or Middle School, may stay with that program or meet with an advisor to transition to the Practice of Teaching program.
Teacher institutes support the educational needs of teachers and teacher leaders in our Master’s and continuing teacher certification programs.
Courses in this program are offered on a rotating basis at four regional centers. Some classes are face-to-face instruction, and many are offered in hybrid format.
