Program Overview

On Campus Online

The Master of Education in Secondary Education with Nevada Teaching License program is the ideal program for candidates who are committed to becoming instructional leaders in grades 7-12. Throughout the master’s secondary education program, you’ll learn to integrate theory and practice, and ultimately promote lifelong learning.

The coursework is structured in four intra- and interrelated areas: foundation courses, secondary education method courses, student teaching courses, and research. The foundation provides fundamental conceptual knowledge and skills, field experiences, and assessments, all designed to support you in ways that establish and maintain inclusive learning environments for all learners. Methods courses ground the candidate in best teaching practices. Student teaching allows you to apply your skills in the classroom.

The program and coursework meet the Nevada Department of Education requirements for Nevada teacher licensure.
