The Master’s of Education (MEd) degree in Curriculum and Instruction is for Texas certified teachers interested in the improvement of classroom teaching through advanced studies in the content and methodology of subjects taught in elementary classrooms. The major in curriculum and instruction, available primarily to experienced teachers, prepares graduates to
- improve student engagement and teaching effectiveness and
- qualify for leadership positions in settings for which the master’s degree is required, and
- teach at the community college or dual credit classes at the high school level.
A graduate with a major in curriculum and instruction should possess knowledge of the research and literature in curriculum and instruction, curriculum and instructional design in subjects taught in elementary schools, effective teaching practices, and the teaching of students who are culturally diverse.
