What will I learn?

With a Master of Education in secondary education, you’ll gain the knowledge, experience and skills to teach in today’s classrooms and communities. Subject matter, research, theory and field-based experience will help you teach with confidence. Learn to foster caring, cooperation and improvement, with internships available in culturally, linguistically and socioeconomically diverse urban and rural schools. Our teacher education program prepares teacher-leaders ̶ excellent practitioners who work toward improving education in and beyond the classroom. The M.Ed. leads to certification for teaching in secondary schools, as does the M.A.T., which requires more subject matter concentration, rather than education.

WHY CHOOSE UNH FOR YOUR SECONDARY EDUCATION DEGREE?

At UNH, you’ll be able to enter the secondary education program at the graduate level or as part of the accelerated master’s program, through which you begin preparation at the undergraduate level with a semester of field experience and professional coursework in education. After completion of your baccalaureate degree, you’ll move into a fifth year of study and full-year internship, leading to the M.Ed. degree and licensure for teaching. Issues related to the challenges and rewards of serving in diverse schools are woven into the teacher preparation program, with unique opportunities through UNH Manchester and the Teacher Residency for Rural Education program.

POTENTIAL CAREER AREAS

Secondary school teaching

The Secondary Education program provides certification and an M.Ed. degree for those who wish to teach in secondary schools.

The M.A.T. requires that at least three graduate-level courses be in an area of subject matter concentration rather than in education. The basic program to achieve these ends is the five-year program in which students begin preparation for teaching at the undergraduate level with a semester of field experience and professional course work in education. Students complete a baccalaureate degree outside of education and move into a fifth year of study and full-year internship which lead to either the M.Ed. or M.A.T. degree and licensure for teaching.
