Curriculum & Instruction Specialization
Curriculum & Instruction (C&I) Specialization in the Master of Arts in Education Program
Candidates typically complete coursework and experiences for the Master of Arts in Education in the C&I Specialization within five quarters of enrollment.
The specialization has three types of courses and two areas of emphasis, the Elementary Teacher Emphasis (ETE) and the Secondary Teacher Emphasis (STE). All candidates will take core courses for the Master of Arts in Education and core cores for the C&I Specialization. Then there are 12 units of coursework for each area of emphasis, but different options for elementary versus secondary teachers.
