M.Ed. in Business/Workforce Development

Designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of individuals, this program includes a common core of 18 credits, plus 12 credits in one of three areas of specialization: Business, Workforce, or Administrative. Within each area of specialization, students are encouraged to enroll in courses that meet their professional areas of interest.

Business Specialization

The Business specialization is of interest to individuals desiring to enhance their knowledge of pedagogy, study current business issues and trends, and expand the use of technology in the learning environment. In addition, an opportunity is available for an individual to complete the requirements for initial Pennsylvania K-12 teaching certification in Business, Computer, and Information Technology (business education). This opportunity requires the completion of additional course work beyond the 30 credits required for the M.Ed.

Workforce Specialization

The Workforce specialization is of interest to individuals desiring to broaden their understanding of business, to enhance their knowledge of industry training, and to update their understanding of new technologies used in the workforce.

Administrative Specialization

The Administrative specialization provides an option for candidates interested in curriculum development and supervision of vocational programs. An enhancement of this specialization is the opportunity to complete the requirements for Pennsylvania Department of Education certification as a supervisor of vocational education. This opportunity requires the completion of additional coursework beyond the 30 credits required for the M.Ed.

Courses can be taken on either a full- or part-time basis, with classes offered during the evening; a full schedule of course offerings is available in the Summer. Needs of each student are addressed through individual attention, flexible scheduling, and opportunities for original research.

Upon admission to the School of Graduate Studies and Research, the student is assigned an advisor to assist in tailoring the program to meet individual goals. This flexibility is a key feature of the program.
