M.Ed.- Elementary Education
The Master's Program in Elementary Education is designed for students who desire initial licensure in elementary education, K-6. Students with prior teacher certification may also enroll in the program. This program prepares students with a foundation of educational theory, research, and practices for teaching in the elementary school classroom. This preparation focuses on reading theory and practice, thematic teaching and portfolio assessment. Courses emphasize critical thinking, evaluation, and writing. Students are required to complete a three-credit practicum prior to the 15 weeks of consecutively scheduled student teaching in an elementary school classroom. The three-credit practicum is used to meet the 60 hours of early field experience required for licensure in the State of Vermont and is designed to meet the individual needs and interests of students in preparation for student teaching.
