Master of Education Program Description
The intent of this online option to the existing M.Ed. program is to build on the&nbsp; current on-ground graduate programs in education, and respond to the critical need in the state of Maryland and the nation for highly qualified teachers, and address the&nbsp; current critical teacher shortage.. The fully online delivery format will increase access to those students not in the immediate Goucher on-ground market area, and allow the program to serve a larger student base.&nbsp; An online option for the M.Ed. program will be responsive to our stakeholders and will enable students who cannot access the campus to customize activities unique to their assignment while gaining a broad understanding and appreciation of the content, skills, strategies and applications&nbsp; of coursework. <br> <br>Goucher College&#39;s Master of Education degree and Professional Development Certificates are designed with a curriculum that integrates theoretical and practical course work in ten areas of specialization: <br>• Athletic Program Leadership and Administration <br>• At-Risk &amp; Diverse Learners <br>• Literacy Strategies for Content Learning <br>• Middle School Specialization <br>• Montessori Studies <br>• Reading Instruction <br>• School Improvement Leadership <br>• Reducing&nbsp; Student, Classroom, and School&nbsp; Disruption:&nbsp; Prevention and Intervention <br>• Special Education for certified Elementary and Secondary Teachers <br>• Teacher&nbsp; as Leader in Technology <br>
