Curriculum and Instruction Major (M.Ed.)

Specialization: Licensure Endorsement in Secondary Education

Greetings from the Coordinator....

On behalf of the faculty teaching in the program, I would love to welcome your application to our program. This specialization is designed to allow graduate students to meet the State of Tennessee initial licensure requirements in secondary education while pursuing a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Candidates in this program must meet all requirements in the major areas of study, any undergraduate requirements, and all education courses needed to obtain an initial teaching license. In addition to any academic courses needed, students must meet: admission requirements for both The College of Education Teacher Education Program and Educational Leadership's Graduate Program; successfully complete and pass all required clinical experiences and; pass all parts of the required culminating exams (Praxis II (NTE) Exams, Graduate Comprehensive Exams, and the EdTPA Exam). The program is 33-39 credit hours depending on student's status, prior coursework, and hours required for the teaching practicum. Completion of this Master's program does not guarantee licensure, but fulfills all education requirements necessary for an initial license in secondary education.

This program is structured as an on-campus cohort program and, depending on student's transcript analysis, should last around five semesters. Applications for the Fall 2018 cohort are currently being accepted. If you are interested in the program and/or have specific questions about the program, it would be my pleasure to talk with you. Thanks for your interest in our program.
