Combined Credential and Master's Program

Amanda Teacher-credential candidates may begin taking master’s courses in the Curriculum and Instruction option combined with the teacher-credential courses. ERA 5900 ( Introduction to Graduate Studies) is advised as the initial course for those interested in earning the master’s degree. 

Teacher-credential candidates may transfer up to three approved teacher-credential (EDU) courses towards the master’s degree. Interested students should contact the program coordinator through the CEIS Graduate Studies Office (Bldg. 6-219) to obtain a Roadmap of courses. Change of Degree forms should be submitted during Clinical Practice and are available in the CEIS Graduate Studies Office (6-219) or online by downloading the form. Teacher-credential students in the combined program must reach program completion before the master’s degree can be posted, unless a waiver has been approved by the CEIS Graduate Studies Coordinator and the Education Department Chair.
