Master of Science in Education (MSEd)

Curriculum and Instruction with a Specialization in Secondary Education/English

The Department of English Language and Literature, in cooperation with the School of EducationŐs Department of Curriculum and Instruction, offers an English teaching field as part of the Master of Science in Education degree (Secondary English Education, grades 6-12). A jointly advised MSEd/English program, ordinarily consisting of 15 hours in graduate-level English courses, will be designed, taking into account each student's background and interests. Throughout the program (and before signing up for any courses in English) MSEd/English students must consult with the English Education graduate advisor (Dr. Anderson). Students are required to complete at least 42 semester hours in English (graduate and undergraduate work combined) to be eligible for the degree; therefore, some programs will include more than 15 hours in English in order to satisfy this requirement. Students must achieve a 3.0 cumulative grade point average in English (including all undergraduate and graduate English courses) and an overall average of 3.0 in the MSEd/English program (3.0 GPA = B average). For further information and specific School of Education requirements for the MSEd degree, see the Department of Curriculum and Instruction: Department of Curriculum and Instruction.
