Students who seek a career in education after obtaining a four-year liberal arts degree that did not include teacher licensure should visit the Master's Degree + Teacher Licensure pages to read about our M.Ed. programs in Elementary and Secondary Education. 

Our master of education programs are intended for those who seek advanced study in learning, teaching, or design.

In all M.Ed. programs, students take courses from a common professional core, a major, and electives for a minimum of 31 semester hours of post-baccalaureate credit. Programs of study are planned in consultation with the student's faculty advisor. M.Ed. students have the option of completing a capstone experience or writing a thesis. At least 15 hours of courses must be courses intended exclusively for graduate and professional students (3000-level courses). Post-baccalaureate credit is defined as that coursework listed in the Peabody College bulletin and the Graduate School bulletin.
