Educational Studies Program Overview
This program is aimed at those working and leading in education-related fields. The Master’s in Education Degree (M.Ed.) in Educational Studies is a unique 30-credit program designed for those who are interested in the field of education, but not interested in public school classroom teaching. This program helps students advance in the wide range of institutions working with children and young adults beyond the public schools, including publishing, journalism, higher education, counseling-related professions, museums, independent schools, government-related positions, summer camps and youth sports, private industry, day care directors, and for profit and not-for-profit organizations.
Those who complete this program will understand why education is an increasingly vital component of the social, economic, and cultural fabric of our nation. Coursework includes a variety of topics related to the foundations of education, child development, multicultural education, ethics, and technology. A block of elective courses allows the degree to be tailored to the individual’s objectives.
This program does not lead to NYS initial certification.
