Master of Arts in Education
Beginning Summer 2018
Virginia Wesleyan University will offer a Master of Arts in Education with endorsement in six content areas for grades 6-12 and seven content areas for grades PreK-12 to prepare educators who will teach boldly and inspire a love for learning among their students and in the communities they will serve.
Central to the M.A. Ed. Programs in Secondary and PreK-12 Education is a 2-semester internship in secondary education settings that begins in the Fall and culminates with a 10-12-week student teaching experience in the Spring. Program candidates will learn through predominantly face-to-face classroom experiences, but will also be exposed to hybrid and online learning experiences to prepare them for the changing education landscape of the 21st Century.
Additional highlights of the program include coursework in cognition and human development, exceptional student populations to include special needs as well as gifted and talented, and collaborating with families and communities. The course of study will be staffed by full-time faculty and in collaboration with highly qualified public school personnel who bring exceptional expertise and experience in vital areas.The MAEd program must be completed on a full-time basis.
