Master of Education

The Master of Education (M.Ed., MEd, Ed.M., M.A.Ed., M.S.Ed. or M.Ed.L) is a postgraduate academic master's degree awarded by universities in a large number of countries. This degree in education often includes the following majors: curriculum and instruction, counseling, and administration. It is often conferred for educators advancing in their field. For classroom teachers in some of the states of the USA, including Massachusetts and New York, a master's degree (or acceptable equivalent) is required to earn a professional license. In most states a master's degree or higher is required for a principalship or school counseling position. Categories of study Typical programs branch into one of several categories: Curriculum and Instruction/Curriculum and Teaching This is typically the area to advance knowledge of, and professional practice in, teaching and learning. Coursework in this field generally focuses on teaching, public service, and scholarship. Often at the master's level, curriculum and instruction majors (or curriculum and teaching at some schools) participate in educational research. This major is designed often for preparation to enter educational careers in schools, including classroom teaching. Counselor Education This is typically the area where students study to become mental health professionals and work toward state licensure in mental health counseling. Typically state licensure requires 90 credit hours on a quarter system. School Counseling Candidates in school counseling typically study psychology, sociology, or social work as undergraduates. The Master's degree, in addition to advanced courses of study, certifies an individual for employment as a school counselor. Neuroscience Interdisciplinary Degree in Education Harvard University is notable for having an interdisciplinary neuroscience master's degree given as an M.Ed. The degree may have little instruction in teaching, with education referring to the learning process in humans versus the profession or institution of education. Academic Enrichment This is typically the area where teachers are increasing their knowledge in their specific field or branching to another area within teaching. Examples are subject related, such as mathematics, social studies, or science, or tiers of school, such as elementary or high school. These teachers may be maintaining their certification or moving into a more marketable bracket. Higher Education and Student Affairs Coursework in this area is aimed at the study of colleges and universities (higher education) or the administrative operations of higher education (student affairs) in specific programmatic elements. Ordinarily, the only requirement for admission to this type of program is an undergraduate degree. Adult Education Typically serves individuals 18 years or older. Some classes, such as adult literacy, high school diploma programs, English as a second language, parent education, and some job training classes are sponsored by the government. Others, such as art and dance classes are fee-based. A B.Ed. degree or teacher's certificate is not usually a requirement for admission to an adult education program. Prep for Ed.D., or Ph.D. This is typically the area where teachers study for continuing work into the doctoral programs. Candidates in this area would study specific educational issues and often get into educational research in preparation for doctoral work. This is the broadest area of master's work for education.
