The Master of Education (MEd) 30 credit program is suited to students who want to combine a strong understanding of current theory and practice in education and/or organizational leadership with their personal needs and career focus. The Master of Education also provides students with the foundational knowledge and skills necessary for doctoral level study. Northcentral offers a standard MEd track with 13 specializations and an accelerated track with 2 specializations designed to be completed in only one year. (The PK-12 Principal Leadership specialization that prepares candidates to meet Arizona State certification requirements requires an additional 6 credit hours).
NCU’s MEd specialization in Reading Education program will strengthen and polish student’s teaching skills and strategies for developing literacy proficiency grades K-12.

Students will also be asked to demonstrate effective use of current technology, reflect on likely situations, practically integrate theories, and learn from case studies. Students also explore the history of literacy in America within a cultural, sociological, political, and economic framework.
