Concordia University – Portland

Program Details

Concordia University–Portland's timely, unique new Trauma and Resilience in Educational Settings concentration within the MEd in Curriculum & Instruction degree program addresses one of the biggest problems affecting students today: trauma. Students who experience trauma need a teacher, a nurse, a principal—someone who knows how to effectively recognize and respond to trauma. If you want to be that person for students, this MEd concentration may be right for you. By earning this degree fully online in just one year, you can bring life-changing knowledge to your school. You'll learn how to lead your school, district, or community in trauma-informed and resilience-building practices—all while learning how to better care for yourself through it all.
