Online Graduate Studies in Education

Crandall University’s Master of Education is a degree designed for educators who want to enhance their abilities to respond to student needs.

Build your knowledge and pedagogical skills, exploring the needs of struggling students in the classroom.

Collaborate with other educators in online, synchronous classes held on Microsoft Teams.

The applied focus of our courses equips educators with the tools needed to increase their effectiveness in the classroom.

Classes are designed for passionate educators to advance in their careers, attending classes at times that are set to accommodate teachers’ weekday classroom schedules. Through the school year, classes are held exclusively on Saturdays, and more options are available during the summer.

Students completing the Master of Education degree can choose between concentrations in Inclusionary Practices or Literacy. Students may also 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.

In addition, students completing the Master of Education in Inclusionary Practices degree can choose to take three courses that may be applied toward a Principal’s Certificate. These courses include:

  • ED6403 – Administrative Theory
  • ED6413 – Supervision and Instructional Leadership
  • ED6616 – Individual Student Assessment.

Career Outlook

Graduates of the program may serve as teachers, administrators, literacy coaches, reading specialists, resource educators, or researchers. They may also be eligible to pursue other master’s degrees or doctoral degrees (Doctor of Education).

Crandall University’s Master of Education normally allows graduates who hold a Certificate 5 with the New Brunswick Department of Education to advance to a Certificate 6.

It is recommended that individuals concerned with New Brunswick teacher certification regulations contact the NB Teacher certification Branch to ensure that their degree and/or specific course selections will comply with regulations for certification.

MEd Admission Requirements

Applicants to the Master of Education degree program are required to have a 60 credit hour Bachelor of Education degree, or equivalent, with a minimum grade point average of 3.0 (B) and at least the equivalent of one-year of full-time teaching experience. (The completion of these 60 credit hours also presumes a minimal equivalent of 168 credit hours overall when previous degrees’ credits are combined with the applicant’s BEd degree.) Please arrange for official transcripts from each previous post-secondary institution attended to be sent directly to Crandall University from the issuing institution(s).

All applicants to the Master of Education degree program must submit, along with their application, a resume and a letter of intent that presents their professional goals and how the completion of the MEd can help meet and achieve these aspirations. 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. Given this information, each application will then be assessed on its own merit by the University’s Graduate Education Admission Committee.

Online applications are accepted throughout the year for Fall, Winter, and Spring start dates, though spaces are limited for Fall and Winter terms. To ensure availability, please apply before May 30 for a Fall start and by September 30 for Winter. Applications received after these dates will be reviewed based on spaces available.
