Master of Education with Licensure
The Master of Education (M.Ed.) with licensure program is designed for those seeking a master's degree and initial teaching licensure in the State of Oregon.
This program will provide a strong foundation in ethical thinking needed by licensed teachers in serving diverse children, families, and educational communities. You will learn to implement strong classroom management, best teaching practices, well-crafted lesson plans, and useful assessment tools. You’ll also gain a strong understanding of what is expected of teachers and students for state standards. The courses and standards have been outlined and approved by Teacher Standards & Practices Commission (TSPC).
Faculty in the programs are experienced classroom teachers who support the philosophy that students construct their learning as they grow and develop. With this philosophy in mind, candidates will be able to apply additional skills to enhance the teaching and learning process in their own classrooms.
Classes are offered in the evenings, with the student teaching taking place in the fourth and fifth semesters, normally during daytime school hours. Students complete the Master's portion of the program with an Action Research course and a Portfolio Capstone Project.
