The Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction is for you if you want to maximize your potential as a classroom teacher.  It will help you explore and expand your ideas about teaching, curriculum, learning and working with a wide range of students and parents.  The program's unique feature is your ability to specialize in one of three concentrations: curriculum, leadership (that leads to state Teacher Leadership Endorsement) or reading (that leads to state Reading Endorsement).
