What makes the M.Ed. program at Marylhurst unique?

Commitment to principles of social justice

The Marylhurst master's in education program is committed to developing educators' abilities to make a positive impact on the most pressing educational issue facing our state — the glaring gap in children's achievement levels caused by complex social, economic and historical factors.

Reading emphasis

Our master's in education program also provides advanced skills in reading instruction and the ability to work successfully with students whose first language is not English.

Full-time or part-time

You can maintain your work and family commitments by scheduling classes on a part-time basis. Full-time students attend classes for six consecutive terms, taking nine credits each term. Part-time studies last approximately 10 terms.

Evening and weekend courses

Courses are taught primarily in evening and weekend seminars. Some courses may be delivered in a blended on campus and online format. With an emphasis in technology, our degree candidates demonstrate the skills proficiency desired by employers.

Pathways to M.Ed. degree

Choose one of two pathways to the M.Ed. degree:
1. Combine any two of the four concentrations
2. Complete the professional education concentration plus 21 to 24 electives

Program Electives
