This program is designed for professional educators who are lifelong learners, respectful of all individuals, dedicated to social justice, knowledgeable about current legal, social, and political issues, effective communicators, and skilled in understanding, interpreting, and applying research findings.

This program does not lead to Level I (PK – 4) teacher certification but is for individuals seeking an opportunity to study new areas of education and areas of special interest. Classes are offered in both a blended and online format, as 8-week courses.

This Master’s degree offers experienced teachers the opportunity to develop expertise in a particular area of education. In addition, many of the concentration areas offered through this program prepare students for additional certifications or endorsements. Students who already have master degrees have the option of completing just the certification requirements in an area without completing the entire master's program.

This program helps Level I certified teachers complete the requirements for obtaining Level II teacher certification in Pennsylvania. Additional certifications that graduates of the program may be eligible to apply for include:

• Special Education

• Reading Specialist

• Education Administration (Pennsylvania Principal certification)

• ESL Program Specialist

• Autism Endorsement

Students may also choose to pursue a more general concentration, with courses pulled from more than one certification area. This does not lead to additional certification but it does provide students with a master’s degree and additional expertise in several areas.
