MSEd Degree Requirements

Course & Semester Schedule

Our courses are designed to connect your learning with your teaching context and weekly fieldwork will be required. Weekly engagement in coursework begins on Mondays and while there are deadlines for parts of each course, you have the flexibility to participate in courses and coursework around the demands of your life and schedule.

Demands for synchronous class meetings are minimal and noted below. Two courses will involve three or fewer synchronous meetings and dates/times will be posted in advance for planning your schedule:

  • LEDU 516 (Collaboration & Communication Across Diverse Learning Contexts)
  • LEDU 550 (Capstone Seminar: Critical Reflective Literacy Pedagogy)
