Curriculum and Instruction (M.Ed.)

Marymount’s Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction is designed for those students who are not seeking a teaching license. Students in this program may be practicing teachers, education professionals who are not working in a classroom setting (such as an educational agency, museum, or government position) or students who intend to teach in international or private schools.

Along with completing a core of professional courses intended to develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions basic to the field of education, students will complete courses in one of four concentrations and a professional project designed to meet the individual needs, interests, and goals of the student.

Students meet one-on-one with an Education Department faculty member to map a unique program of study in one of the following concentrations: Curriculum and Instruction, ESL and International Studies,  Exceptional Students, or Science, Technology, Engineering,  Math (STEM).

This program is offered on the Main Campus in a self-paced traditional format. Classes in the traditional format program are scheduled in late afternoon and evening. Most students complete the Main Campus program in two to three years.

A part-time weekend cohort is also offered. Students in this program may continue to work and keep full-time commitments throughout the two year program. This program is ideal for career switchers and for students who have full-time commitments Monday through Friday during the day.
