M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction program requirements

Candidates with a bachelor’s degree can now enroll in our Emerging Teacher Prep program, which offers a Master's of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction that prepares you to become certified as a teacher in Texas. 

The program can be completed in one academic year, or three semesters including summer, fall and spring.  Because of this, a candidate that begins in the summer semester could be eligible for a paid, one-year teaching internship by August. We understand that you have a busy life, that’s why our program offers a flexible schedule with courses in the evenings, typically once a week.
