The Master of Education in Teaching (with multiple concentrations) has been developed to meet the needs of licensed classroom practitioners by linking what has been learned about effective teaching to best practices in the classroom. Coursework is structured within the context of three essential areas that affect today's classroom teachers: instruction, curriculum, and professional development. Through interaction with faculty members who are committed to the collaborative and integrative investigation of problems in practice, students will experience a comprehensive study of current educational research and critical analysis of classroom teaching and learning. Graduates of the program will earn a Master of Education: Teaching degree. The Master of Education (M.Ed.): Teaching program is not designed to lead to certification or licensure. See instead the M.Ed.: Teaching – Elementary Education, the M.Ed.: Teaching – Secondary Social Studies, and the Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Preparation Certification Program (Graduate Certificate.)
The American Public University System is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, North Central Association; and nationally, by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council.
