Master’s in Education, Monroeville


Why a Master’s Program in Education at IUP?

The M.Ed. in Education prepares you to be a “teacher leader” within your classroom, school, and community. Build your instructional and leadership capacity and learn how to partner with other professionals and create conditions for student success. Taught by highly qualified faculty teams who are active researchers and practitioners, our course workallows you to master topics relating to curriculum development, technology integration, instruction in an inclusive classroom, and teacher leadership.

IUP is an Act 48-approved provider for Pennsylvania educators, so the courses for the Master’s in Education may count toward professional development hours.

What Will You Achieve?

  • Earn your M.Ed. degree in two years while you continue teaching.
