Curriculum and Instruction (Online)

Program Code: ME6269

The Master's in Curriculum and Instruction is designed for teachers and educators who have already earned a Bachelor’s degree and have a teaching license or certificate in any content area or at any age/grade-band level. Teachers entering the C&I Master’s program at Ohio University are seeking opportunities to advance their knowledge, skills, and dispositions in instruction, curriculum design and evaluation. Coursework and clinical experiences in your own classrooms or non-traditional educational settings will focus on innovations in teaching, student learning, curriculum development, pedagogy, assessment, mentoring, and community involvement culminating in a Master’s Action Research project that you will complete in your own classroom, school, educational setting, or community. Please note: While working on your M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction, you must also be gainfully employed as an educator in an educational setting during the Fall & Spring semesters in which you are taking courses.

Because this program is aligned with NBPTS, graduates willl be prepared to sit for the NBPTS exam and submit at least one portfolio towards the NBPT certification.
