At Meredith College, you earn a Master of Education with a specialty in one of the following areas:
The program is designed for the K-12 teacher who has a bachelor’s degree and a valid teaching license or is eligible for an initial teaching license.
The Meredith M.Ed. curriculum prepares educators for the ever-changing educational environment. Students become proficient in today's classroom technology, best practices for content delivery, and the importance of implementing research-based practices in the classroom. Students also work together to understand the power of collaboration and positive relationships in effective school leadership.
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.
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.
