The Master of Education degree program in curriculum and instruction is designed to meet the growing national need for highly qualified teachers at all classroom levels. Courses include advanced studies in research-based practices for teaching and learning, curriculum design, assessment, and program improvement. The program does not lead to teaching certification.
All students will be trained in the use of Sakai, Ohio Valley University’s easy-to-use collaborative, online learning environment. This tool helps the student learn, but also provides a high degree of interactivity with fellow students and professors.
