What is an M.Ed. Degree?

An M.Ed. or Master of Education is a graduate program track that specializes in specific teaching skills needed for roles in education. These tracks often include teacher preparation content, with the goal of helping you further your career in education or break into this rewarding field for the first time.

M.Ed. degree programs can help you meet additional licensure requirements, meet advanced licensure requirements, or even help you enter a new career field outside of teaching, such as instructional design. If you want to pursue an initial teaching license and already have a bachelor’s degree, see the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program.

Liberty University’s online Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction seeks to provide the skills and tools you need to take on specialized education roles. Even with years of teaching experience, you may need new, advanced training to tackle the challenges of education administration, gifted education, history, special education, student services, and many more specific fields of education.

Core foundational courses and study throughout each degree completion plan cover educational research and assessment as well as foundations of excellent teaching and education. We want to provide you with the base knowledge of education to build upon your specialized knowledge.

If your passions lie in special education, you will have coursework that delves deep into the understanding of inclusive classrooms and characteristics of autism spectrum disorders. These key skills and tools can also be relevant to anyone seeking to teach in a general classroom setting. Here at Liberty, you can receive training on how to use technology in the classroom efficiently for optimal learning and training in your desired grade level.
