Crandall University’s Master of Education is a degree designed for educators who want to enhance their abilities to respond to student needs. Students completing this 30 credit hour Master of Education program can choose between concentrations in Inclusionary Practices or Literacy. In addition, students can choose a course only option or a major research project option. The major research project is 6 of the 30 credit hours required to complete the degree. The application-based focus of our courses equips educators with the tools needed to apply their knowledge. Graduates of the program may serve as teachers, administrators, literacy coaches, reading specialists, resource educators, or researchers.

Also submitted should be at least two professional reference letters from individuals who can provide input regarding the applicant’s strengths as an educator and why they support the applicant’s decision to complete the MEd degree.
