Social Emotional Learning (Master of Education)

The Master of Education in Social Emotional Learning 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 Learning 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, 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.
