Why I Earned a Masters of Arts in Education
I love teaching. Always have. At Fresno State I found the perfect environment to learn and learn how to teach.
Masters of Arts in Education
The 30-unit Master of Arts degree in Education with a concentration in Curriculum and Instruction (M.A.Ed.-C&I) is designed for teachers and other professionals who desire advanced study in curriculum, instruction, educational psychology, research design, and educational statistics. Although a majority of M.A.Ed.-C&I students are teachers, a teaching credential is not a requirement for admission.
Graduates of the M.A.Ed.-C&I program have held a wide variety of positions: Director of Research, Evaluation and Assessment for a large school district; teacher on special assignment for mathematics; literacy coach; teaching assistant and doctoral student in educational technology; grade level teacher-leader; high school department chair; educational consultant; education coordinator for a national corporation; research associate for state and federal grants; instructor of educational statistics at Fresno State; and many more. A number of M.A.Ed.-C&I graduates have also chosen to remain in the classroom and use the knowledge they have gained in the program to enhance their instructional effectiveness.
