The Curriculum and Instruction program, leading either to a Master of Education (M.Ed.) or a Specialist in Education (Ed.S.) degree is designed to foster the development of teaching skills that result in increased pupil performance. By analyzing curriculum choices and strategies, along with best teaching practices, those who complete either of these programs will be better equipped to provide an environment in which students engage in relevant and meaningful learning activities. Upon enrollment in a Curriculum and Licensure program, students will select either the research path or the practicum path. MTSU offers a specialization in secondary education licensure. This specialization offers a path for non-licensed degree-holding individuals seeking licensure to teach in secondary public schools. The Womack Educational Leadership department also offers a non-licensure generalist Curriculum and Instruction major.
The Department of Elementary and Special Education offers the Master of Education degree with a major in Curriculum and Instruction. The major in Curriculum and Instruction offers concentrations in Early Childhood Education, Elementary School Education, and Middle School Education. A specialization in inclusion education is available as is a specialization leading to initial licensure.
Career Graduates from the Curriculum and Instruction programs may be employed in a variety of positions. Examples include, but are not limited to:
