This option is targeted at professional educators who seek to enhance their competence in curriculum design and implementa­tion, both on a classroom and a systemic level. The requirements are sufficiently flexible to permit elementary teachers and teachers with subject-area concentrations (e.g., mathematics, science, history, english), or to enable those with supervisory interests, to improve their skills in curriculum development and instruction.

Specialization Prerequisites: State teacher certification and a minimum of 18 months of verified satisfactory full-time experience in education prior to awarding of degree.
