Mission The School of Education offers three master's degree programs -- The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Education, the Master of Education (M.Ed.), and the Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.). All programs support the mission of the university and the school by:

  • teaching basic research skills and techniques;
  • focusing on research in emerging policy, practice, and professional life;
  • addressing contemporary issues, needs, and trends in education and psychology;
  • providing supervised practicums in the area of specialization; and
  • assisting students in the development and application of a philosophy of Christian service.



Most specialization options are sufficiently flexible to meet individual needs. However, an applicant wishing to pursue a specialization in an area other than those listed above may submit to the department and the Graduate Council an individualized proposal. At least 24 quarter hours (18 hours in M.A. program) must be itemized in the chosen specialization area. Additional credits needed to complete the degree will be selected in harmony with the degree requirements specified in the Graduate Bulletin. An individualized program must be planned in consultation with an adviser in the School of Education and Psychology and requires Graduate Council approval before it is implemented.
