Curriculum & Instruction master’s goes online

The UNT College of Education’s Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, which aims to give current educators the skills they need to pursue leadership roles at the campus and district level, is now available almost completely online.

Program advisor Mei Hoyt said the program’s move to the web opens it up to more educators who are looking to expand their career opportunities.

“The program is designed for current teachers, but it’s often difficult for them to get to campus for classes,” she said. “Online we can offer more flexibility without compromising the high-quality education our students need.”

The program offers three concentrations: literacy, bilingual and English as a Second Language (ESL), math, or a specialization in a select area of the student’s interest. Hoyt said students take 10 total courses — four core, four in the chosen concentration area and two electives — in addition to completing an online portfolio.

“Our students will gain critical digital literacy skills and research-based learning at an affordable cost,” Hoyt said. “We also work with students individually and try to cater the program to their needs.”
