Program Overview

At Concordia, we want to help educators be at their best. This is why we care about your intellectual, social, and spiritual growth. Small class sizes allow for personalized support from caring faculty with years of first-hand experience as Michigan educators. Our graduate education courses are available fully online with new classes every eight to ten weeks. You can earn your master’s in curriculum and instruction in as little as two years, but our easy start-and-stop format allows you to take space between courses if you need it.

You will expand your teaching skills, learn how to improve curriculum design and assessment, and gain a critical understanding of social, ethnic, and political issues impacting the classroom. You’ll graduate a “master educator”, ready to inspire transformation and make your classroom a place of profound learning.

What to Expect

Our program is aligned with Michigan Curriculum Framework and Grade Level Content Expectations (check with your state DPI or DOE for transferability). You will leave this program invigorated in your calling as a teacher, confident in your new skills, and passionate about designing world-class educational experiences.
