About our program

Here’s a basic overview of our Master’s in Education (Ed.M.) program, admission requirements, and application process.

CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION

The non-thesis Ed.M. degree with a specialization in Curriculum and Instruction focuses on advancing teachers’ or other professionals’ depth of knowledge in K-12 education. Candidates can opt for either a general emphasis encompassing core curricular areas or choose to focus on WSU Tri-Cities’ signature science and mathematics education program. The required coursework emphasizes both theoretical and practical issues in K-12 curriculum and instruction.

The degree in Curriculum and Instruction does not lead to an endorsement.  Specialization options are available in Special Education, Science and Mathematics Education or General Curriculum and Instruction.
