Social Emotional Development (Master of Education)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs of Study

The Master of Education in Social Emotional Development is a 36 credit non-licensure program. The intent of this program is to be the trailblazer in this area. What differentiates this M.Ed. in Social Emotional Development is that students will be trained with an integrated, connected approach to understanding and implementing the research about social emotional development as an overarching premise of the educational process, rather than something that is added to an already demanding PreK-12 curriculum. Students will master content-specific skills relevant to social emotional development, participate in a 300 hour, two semester practicum where they will apply these mastered skills in their own professional educational settings, and culminate with a Master’s Thesis that is a research-based, practical, and overarching social emotional initiative that they will be able to apply to their current or potential professional position.
