INDIVIDUALLY DESIGNED (M.Ed., C.A.S.)

 

M.Ed.:  The college-wide individually designed Master of Education provides a cohesive program of professional development for educators. The program of study is individually planned by the student and his or her advisor. A minimum of 33 semester hours of work is required to earn the M.Ed.  Candidates must complete a minimum of 12 semester hours in professional education coursework at the 500- and/or 600-level at the University of Maine. In lieu of a thesis, students must complete a comprehensive paper, project, portfolio, or oral examination, generally during the final semester or year of study.
