This concentration provides direct training and experience in the art and science of teaching at the college level, balanced with sufficient (i.e., 18 credit hours) graduate-level course work in a particular field. A master's degree is unlikely to provide sufficient educational background for a tenure-track position, but it can open the door to serving as an instructor or adjunct at a 4-year college/university or as a full-time instructor at a community college or junior college. (Note that matching the focus of this concentration with your undergraduate major will increase the chances of being selected to teach at the college level.)

All courses are 3 credit hours unless otherwise noted.
