MEd in Curriculum & Instruction - Trauma & Resilience in Educational Settings
A parent going off to war. A car accident. Abuse. Nearly two out of three students experience trauma and it often openly or subtly affects their focus, behavior, and success in the classroom. These kids need a teacher, a principal, a guidance counselor, a school nurse — someone at school with extensive knowledge on how to recognize and respond to trauma. And if that person is you, building strength in your students is as important as cultivating it in yourself. That’s why Concordia’s groundbreaking new concentration, Trauma and Resilience in Educational Settings, is unique, imperative, and timely; in one year, you could bring life-changing knowledge to your school and, at the same time, care for yourself.
Open to a wide range of education professionals, Concordia’s MEd in Curriculum & Instruction: Trauma and Resilience in Educational Settings will help you examine what is becoming a central concern and focus for public schools — effective responses to student trauma and the resilience necessary to thrive in the classroom. You’ll learn how to become a school, district, or community leader with the understanding and use of trauma-informed and resilience-building practices, and you’ll also study the importance of self-care throughout it all.
Accredited, nonprofit, and taught by practitioners, all of Concordia’s online MEd programs reflect the same meaningful experience we’ve been delivering on campus since 1905. The convenience of 100 percent online, clearly defined coursework — paired with realistic deadlines and the ability to immediately apply what you learn in your classroom — makes our programs ideal for busy lifestyles. And the potential career benefits — from higher pay to promotions — are second only to the reward of having an everlasting impact on the lives of your students.
