The Master of Education in Education Studies degree is designed for those who want to work with children and youth in positions that do not require state licensure/certification, or who may want to enter a teacher licensure/certification program at a later date, or who may want to gain a strong general foundation in areas such as learning theory, educational psychology, child development, and education best practices in preparation for a variety of other occupations and career paths. The Education Studies degree provides candidates with three possible areas of concentration: Elementary Education (K-6), Secondary Education (7-12), and Special Education (K-12), but does not qualify recipients for state licensure and/or certification.
Once admitted to the Education Studies degree program, students have the option of remaining in that major and completing the M.Ed. in Education Studies, or applying for admission to a parallel degree program that contributes to eligibility for licensure/certification as a Delaware educator.
Admission to licensure/certification programs requires applicants to demonstrate mastery of general knowledge, including the ability to read, write, and compute, by achieving a score deemed to be college-ready on a test of general knowledge normed to the college-bound population. This requirement can be met by achieving passing scores on all three tests in the ETS Praxis Series Core Academic Skills for Educators.
