Program Description:

The Master of Education degree in Teaching at the University of North Texas is an innovative program that allows you to earn a master’s degree and teacher certification simultaneously.

You start working toward your degree with teacher certification program course work before eventually enrolling in more specialized master’s classes. Most students complete their program taking courses entirely online. However, certain certification areas and specializations may require courses offered only in a traditional classroom setting. Your course work in this program examines:

  • Application of theory to instructional practice
  • Classroom organization
  • Curriculum development
  • Public education
  • Successful teaching practices

With experienced and respected instructors and a high-quality curriculum, we offer one of the finest teacher preparation programs in the Southwest. Overall, the College of Education is recognized as one of the top producers of teachers, administrators, counselors and other school professionals in Texas.

The College of Education is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (2010 Massachusetts Ave. NW, Suite 500; Washington, D.C. 20036; telephone 202-466- 7496). This distinction means we meet or exceed strict academic standards for excellence in educator preparation.
