Department of Curriculum & Instruction

The Department of Curriculum & Instruction includes undergraduate and graduate programs.


Candidates in the Elementary Education and the Middle Grades Education Programs are involved in a rigorous program of study, which integrates content knowledge, skills, and pedagogy. Candidates are prepared to work in diverse cultural contexts through extensive field experiences and technological focus.

The Elementary Education Program leads to a K-6 license.

The Middle Grades Education Program leads to a license in grades 6-9. The candidate must select two academic concentrations in the following content areas: math, science, language arts, or social studies.


Graduate study in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction is designed to provide qualified holders of the bachelor’s degree with a broader, deeper, and more thorough acquaintance with scholarship and research in Educational Technology and Special Education.  Its aim is to develop independent study, originality, and competence in research, and in the application of critical thinking to professional problems.

Due to national and state accreditation standards, program curricula and requirements are subject to change.
