Course info


The Master’s Program at California State University San Marcos is characterized by its emphasis on critical pedagogy and reflective practice. Its view of the classroom teacher and administrator as an instructional, ethical, and curricular leader places high value on individual empowerment, on multiple ways of knowing, on the construction of meaning, and on the production (vs. reproduction) of knowledge.


The Master of Arts in Education is designed for classroom teachers, administrators, and other educators who wish to extend or refine their knowledge and skills beyond the level attained in their previous studies. For some, master’s level study is a way to improve their performance in the classroom; others seek preparation for leadership roles at the school or district level; still others may wish to use master’s studies as the basis for graduate work at the doctoral level.

Program Overview

The Master of Arts in Education consists of three components: Core Coursework, the Option, and the Culminating Experience.

Areas of Study:

  • Schooling, Culture, and Language
  • Science, Mathematics, and Educational Technology for Diverse Populations
  • Teaching, Learning, and Leadership
  • Literacy Education
