Curriculum and Instruction

Master of Arts in Education and Human Development

The master’s program in curriculum and instruction equips students with the knowledge to improve K-16 education in local, national, and international settings.

As part of a 33-39 credit hour program, master’s students may choose to work toward improving their practice and/or conduct research on curriculum, instruction, assessment, and the politics of learning environments both within and outside of the US. Alternatively, master’s students may choose to expand their content knowledge through linkages with disciplines within arts and sciences, and through internships in local schools and educational organizations. Our unique location in Washington, D.C., affords master’s students an opportunity to study in a culturally rich and diverse metropolitan environment. The program offers students the option of specializing in elementary education, secondary education, or reading and literacy.

Certificate Dual Enrollment Option

Students who wish to enroll in the Masters in Curriculum and Instruction program can do so concurrently with the Incorporating International Perspectives in Education certificate. Courses can be double counted toward earning the Masters degree and certificate.
