Graduate Degree Programs

Master of Education

Elementary Education Curriculum & Instruction

Master of Education graduates are prepared to exhibit extensive mastery, depth, and sophistication in their coursework and in their classrooms. They are made aware of current and emerging research and its implications for classroom practice. As a result of their classroom experiences, interactions with colleagues and faculty, and continued study, they think reflectively about classroom practice and ways to enhance it.

The master's degree programs enhance excellence in teaching by encouraging individual growth and application of research-based techniques and emerging theory in the classroom. In addition, these programs build on basic-level preparation that teachers have received and require more in-depth study, reading, research, and sharing with classmates in a professional, collegial, academic setting.

Educational Leadership (K-12 Administration)

This graduate-level program prepares leaders for schools and school districts and blends the theoretical concepts and research of educational leadership with practical aspects of school and school-district operation.

Each component of the 36-hour program is invaluable to the overall goal of preparing entry-level school leaders. It also provides the necessary skills and knowledge to meet Mississippi licensure (AA Certification). Candidates begin the program in the summer as a part of a cohort. Absent extenuating circumstances, students remain in the cohort throughout the program. This group shares a set of common experiences in the classroom and in the field. Candidates take five 6-hour modules and one 6-hour internship over a 5-semester period (36 hours total). Classes are taken in Oxford during the summers. Based on enrollment, during the fall and spring candidates may register for modules in Grenada.
