The MAEd program in Elementary and Middle Grades Education offers you an opportunity for a cohort experience beginning every Spring and Summer 1 session. In this all-online cohort, you will complete your Master’s degree in slightly over one calendar year. You’ll begin in Spring or Summer 1 and complete in the following year at the end of Summer 1 (Spring cohort) or Summer 2 (Summer cohort)! You will find additional information about this cohort here including options for concentrations, add-on certifications, course schedules, and how to apply. While you can apply to begin classes during any semester, the cohort opportunity begins in Spring or Summer 1 only for Elementary Education. Middle Grades Education is always a summer start for the cohort.
