What will I learn?

The Master of Education, Teaching, Learning and Leadership (MTLL) will facilitate individuals in engaging, ongoing dialogue and study based on the integration of research, theory, and best practices. In addition to promoting the professionalization of teaching and improved professional practice, the completion of this degree will prepare teachers to be teacher leaders in the classroom, as an instructional facilitator or a curriculum administrator. Additionally, a unique NTLL Non-Traditional Licensure (NTL) option is available for individuals seeking an initial teacher license.

A graduate student enrolled in the MTLL degree program of study may select a program emphasis from two options: Curriculum Administrator / Master Teacher Leader - an individual who is a career teacher and wants to improve classroom teaching and learning or desires to become a curriculum leader; Non-Traditional Teacher (NTL) - individual with a baccalaureate degree who seeks an alternative route to secure a standard teachers license. A licensure endorsement may be added to an existing standard license by fulfilling the program of study requirements (18 hours) for the Instructional Facilitator.
