M.Ed., Secondary Education

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) in secondary education program with graduate postbaccalaureate teacher licensure offers a pathway for college graduates to earn a teaching certificate and obtain knowledge and skills in practice-based pedagogy. Courses are available on campus at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and by distance delivery across the state of Alaska. The program provides disciplinary and multicultural approaches to teaching students in the diverse contexts of today’s educational settings. Students participate in intensive, mentored and supervised experiences in secondary classrooms, which includes one semester of part-time student teaching and one semester of full-time student teaching.

Students admitted to the M.Ed. in secondary education are concurrently admitted to the secondary postbaccalaureate licensure program. The M.Ed. in secondary education may not be earned without completing the requirements for both programs.
