Teaching, Learning and Advocacy
Master of Education
The School of Education, Health and Human Performance offers a M.Ed. in Teaching, Learning and Advocacy (MTLA) to provide advanced study for certified P-12 teachers who are interested in becoming educational leaders with the skills and knowledge needed to advocate for students, public schools, and the teaching profession. The program focuses primarily on improving educational practices, policies, and learning environments for students, especially those living in poverty. All students complete a set of six (18 credits) core courses that develop the following skills: research, advocacy, policy analysis, self-reflection, and application of theory to practice.
Students deepen their knowledge and skills in one of four concentrations: Curriculum and Instruction, Diverse Learners, New Literacies, or Science and Math. Each concentration involves 18 credit hours.
