Publication Date: 02/25/2020
The University of Texas at Tyler has been recognized as one of the best schools in the country for preparing educators to become leaders in K-12 curriculum and instruction.
UT Tyler’s online Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Curriculum and Instruction was ranked third nationally in its category by intelligent.com, an independent organization that surveys U.S. colleges and programs.
The list of “Best Online Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction Programs’’ is based on a survey of the 177 universities that offer accredited degrees in the subject. Schools were evaluated based on program strength, online readiness, return on investment, cost and student engagement.
“We are honored to be recognized as a leading program in curriculum and instruction,’’ said Dr. Wesley Hickey, dean of the College of Education and Psychology. “This recognition is a reflection of our outstanding faculty and staff and their dedication to delivering high-quality academic programs that serve the needs and goals of today’s students.’’
The UT Tyler program allows educators to advance their understanding of instructional and curricular development and practices. Graduates often move to curriculum and instruction positions in their school districts or remain in the classroom to serve as highly effective teachers or lead teachers.
Students have the option of earning the degree online or on campus, depending on their needs and preferences. Each student also develops a customized degree program with curricula designed to meet their individual career goals.
