M.Ed. Programs

Accelerated Master in Education (AME)

This program prepares participants for initial teacher certification at either the elementary or secondary level. Cohort participants secure clinical placements to support their content-area preparation and complete courses that meet on Monday evenings, Saturday mornings, and online. 

The AME program is ideally suited for paraprofessionals, individuals on temporary/emergency permits, or long-term substitute teachers. Read more about the M.Ed. Program here.
