Students can complete a M.Ed. via a thesis-based route or a course-based route.
Students who choose the Thesis-Based Route must complete a minimum of 18 credit hours. This route includes 6 credit hours of core courses (9 credit hours for Second Language Education), 6 credit hours of research courses, and 6 credit hours of courses that reflect their area of thesis concentration (3 credit hours for Second Language Education). An oral defense of the thesis culminates the student’s program.
Students who choose the Course-Based Route must normally complete 9 credit hours of core courses, 3 credit hours of research courses, 12 credit hours in their area of subject concentration, and 6 credit hours of electives. Students in the course-based route also have to complete a comprehensive exam or a project, which usually culminates with an oral defense of the document.
Although we do offer a few M.Ed. courses by independent study and a few courses via the Web (distance delivery), our graduate programs cannot be completed through distance education alone. For more information speak with an academic advisor.
