Do you want to help inform a wide range of practices and concerns within education? As an Education and Human Development MA student, you'll be encouraged to focus your creativity, imagination and intelligence on real-world challenges impacting learning environments, basing your recommendations and decisions on research findings and objective evidence.

You also may specialize in assessment in a content area like literacy or mathematics.
You will study with outstanding faculty who will help you develop professionally by connecting you to knowledge and practices apparent in today's schools - some traditional, some innovative and most reform-oriented.
Classes are designed to fit your busy schedule, some face-to-face , some online, some on weekends, etc. Students complete the 30 credits in 2 -3 years taking 1 to 3 classes at a time.
