Specialist in Education with a major in Curriculum and Instruction
The Curriculum and Instruction Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) in Curriculum & Instruction program is designed for experienced educators who hold a T-5 certificate (or comparable out-of-state) or higher.
The intent of the Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) in the Curriculum & Instruction program is to extend/enhance skills reflected in the educator's previously awarded teaching certificate field.
Through this program, experienced educators develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to serve as curriculum specialists in their field. They do so by completing 12 hours of advanced pedagogical coursework applied to content in their teaching area of certification. Furthermore, they develop their research skills to conduct field research in the areas of curriculum, instruction, and instructional program evaluation.
