Master of Education Program, Indiana and Monroeville

Brian Henninger

MASTER’S DEGREE THAT FITS WITH HIS CAREER “This particular program fits my scheduling needs perfectly, despite being located off-campus. The hours and the workload are very manageable on top of a fulltime job,” said Brian Henninger, MEd Class of 2015, a teacher at Indiana Area Senior High School in Indiana, Pennsylvania.

The MEd program in Education prepares you to be a “teacher leader” in your classroom, school, and community.

We are accepting applications from PreK-12 and community college teachers for:

  • Fall 2015 (Indiana cohort)
  • Fall 2016 (Monroeville cohort)

Contact us for more information.

The MEd in Education is designed for in-service and substitute teachers holding an Instructional I or II certificate (or the equivalent if certified to teach in a state other than Pennsylvania) and/or other professionals who are teaching at places like Head Start, alternative and charter schools, or community colleges, where certification is not required.

  • Impact the lives of those in your classroom and school by 1) actively working to improve student achievement and confidence, 2) keeping abreast of the field of education, and 3) using your research skills to strengthen classroom instruction and management.
  • Continue to teach while you earn your MEd degree. Attend interactive team-taught classes one evening per week.
  • Expand your professional network by embracing the cohort approach and small-classroom environment.
  • Discover how to create a culturally responsive classroom that enables all students to succeed.
  • Integrate technology into the curriculum to meet the needs of 21st-century education

In this program designed to accommodate busy teachers, you’ll 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 work allows 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.

“Selecting the MEd in Education program was the best decision I could’ve made in choosing my graduate coursework! Learning how to research, using current technology, and bouncing ideas off professional colleagues in the teaching field are only a few of the major benefits.”
