EdM in Curriculum & Teaching

There are multiple pathways within this degree program: (a) one designed to enable the development of a course of study developed collaboratively between students and their advisors, (b) one designed for students who, in addition to receiving their master’s degree, wish to receive an endorsement for a teaching licensure, and (c) some designed for specific cohorts of students. Each of these options is listed and described below.

Teachers who already hold an initial teaching license often select this track to develop an EdM program that includes coursework in both advanced liberal arts and advanced professional education study. With their advisors, students select courses that will either deepen one aspect of their professional expertise or that provide an opportunity to expand their teaching into a new area. Many students select this program because they want the opportunity to study schools, the profession of teaching, or a particular field within teaching.

Core Coursework (16 credits)
  • SED RS 600 Introduction to Research (4 cr)
  • Any SED courses with the prefix BI, CE, CH, CT, DE, EC, EN, HE, LR, LS, LW, ME, PE, SC, SE, SO, or TL (12 cr)
Elective Coursework (20 credits)

Students select elective courses for a total of 20 credits. Elective coursework is chosen in consultation with the academic advisor.

Some students elect to earn, in addition to a master’s degree in Curriculum & Teaching, an endorsement for an Initial License as a Teacher in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The number of credits required for this track ranges from 36 credits to 60 credits, depending upon the license.
