This is a result of area [K-12] superintendents and their school districts expressing to us their need to have highly-trained teachers in the area of curriculum and instruction.”

The university has six faculty members who have credentials to teach in this discipline. It is expected that 20 students will enroll in the new master’s degree within the first year.
