Foundations and Secondary Education – Graduate

 

Change a degree-major-concentration of an existing program                       
Master of Education – Curriculum and Instruction Major Professional Education Concentration


Summary of the Changes:
Department faculty in Foundations and Secondary Education (FSE) are initiating a Master of Arts (MAT) degree with a major in Secondary Education to serve as the degree program for the Jacksonville Teacher Residency candidates as well as individuals who possess a baccalaureate degree and desire to teach at the secondary levels (grades 6-12). The MAT program will allow individuals who are not certified to become effective, certified teachers in the fields of English/Language Arts, Foreign Language, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Currently, the Master of Education (MED) program within FSE is operating under the incorrect Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code. The current CIP is applicable for a Master of Arts degree, not the MED. Upon consultation with Academic Affairs/Director for Academic Programs and Accreditation Liaison, department faculty were advised to amend the MED to reflect the proposed MAT, hence this APC application. Department faculty will initiate a request to plan for a new degree in Fall 2015 for the MED program. These changes will align FSE graduate programs with the proper CIP codes. The degree remains at 36 hours.
