Program Description:

The Southeastern University Master of Education in Arts and Academic Interdisciplinary Education is a Master’s program in education designed to equip educators with the advanced skills teachers need to increase student achievement and emphasizes collaborative teaching and learning.

This program offers six specialty courses to prepare teachers to differentiate instruction using the arts for diverse populations.
