As one of the strongest programs in the region, Meredith has a reputation for educating confident and capable teachers. That’s why so many schools seek out Meredith-trained educators who enter the classroom and make an immediate impact.
Because 98% of Meredith M.Ed. students are currently employed as teachers, the program offers a convenient course schedule to fit with working teachers' schedules. And for additional flexibility, some online and hybrid courses are offered.
Financial assistance is available to M.Ed. students. Options include the Federal TEACH Grant (ESL, reading and special education/general curriculum), financial aid, and need-based scholarships.
Current teachers who are interested in renewing a teaching license may take master’s level courses as a non-degree student.
