Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction / Community Engagement in Education
Concordia University – Portland

Program Details

The MEd in Curriculum & Instruction: Community Engagement in Education program will give teachers the most up-to-date tools for enhancing the mindset, growth, and abilities of students in difficult socioeconomic situations. Infused with Concordia’s commitment to full-child support services for early childhood, elementary, and secondary education levels, this program bolsters and reinforces the abilities of teachers to develop curriculum in multicultural, diverse, at-risk, and high-needs environments, helping to not only better address individual student needs but also better support teachers through opportunities to access community resources. You’ll learn philosophy and theory on educational and community engagement practices, how to create and sustain an equitable classroom, and how to take this knowledge past the classroom as a leader in your community.
