Master of Education Degree in Teaching & Curriculum Available in Summer 2005

3/7/2005 —

Beginning in summer, 2005, Penn State Wilkes-Barre and Penn State Harrisburg will join forces to bring a master of education degree in teaching and curriculum for public and private school teachers who want to improve their classroom instruction and student learning by incorporating the latest educational research, theory and practice.

This 36-credit program will help teachers to communicate more effectively with students, parents, co-workers, and administrators; enhance their ability to conduct instructional programs that provide a sound intellectual and emotional climate for learning; increase their competence in a variety of teaching methods and in the utilization of materials and content; help them to interpret and evaluate educational literature and research; and better describe and evaluate major issues and current trends in instructional curriculum practice and development.

According to John Swayze, continuing education representative in the Northern Tier, “We plan to deliver the teaching and curriculum degree in the Northern Tier so that students can complete the program over a three year period. Students can take 6 credits of electives during the summer and 3 credits each in the fall and spring for the duration of the program.”

For more information, contact John Swayze at 570-265-2171, ext. 3019 or jos3@psu.edu. In the northeast region of the state, the master of education degree will also be available at Penn State Worthington Scranton and Penn State Hazleton.
