MA in Teaching Leads New Academic Offerings
for Fall

Classrooms of the 21st century call for teachers who can lead the transformative social change that schools will find increasingly essential. That’s why the School of Education has created the new MA in Teaching. Launching in Fall 2006, the program lets students select an emphasis in Teacher Leadership, Sports Management, Administration, Conflict Resolution or Interdisciplinary Liberal Arts. The program also offers an initial certification track for individuals looking to change careers.


“Schools need professionals who can analyze test data, design curriculum and coach other teachers on how to change instruction techniques to enhance student achievement,” says Karen Jenlink, dean of the School of Education. “The degree is designed to prepare teachers today for the schools of tomorrow.”


The degree joins three other new academic offerings starting this fall. Students pursuing an MS in Project Management through the School of Management and Business will explore all aspects of the one field that spans every major industry — from engineering and software development to government and utilities, and from consulting and nonprofit organizations to entertainment and manufacturing. The program is designed to equip managers of the present and the future with the tools they’ll need to conclude projects on budget and on time.


The School of Management and Business also will launch an undergraduate degree in Digital Media Management. In Fall 2005, the School of Behavioral and Social Sciences added a major and minor in Forensic Science.
