Master of Education / English Language Learning

Program Details

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).

Children of immigrants are increasing in number throughout the United States, and the English language continues to be widely used as a second language around the world. How are you preparing yourself to meet these opportunities and challenges? 

The MEd in English as a Second Language (ESL) will prepare you to integrate communication techniques to successfully instruct students in English proficiency and meet the needs of all of your second language learners. You will also develop the skills and knowledge to put these methods and approaches into practice within the setting of your classroom, school, district, and state.
