For faculty information, please see Faculty or the Curriculum Studies faculty web page.

The Department of Curriculum Studies and Secondary Education is dedicated to the advancement of excellence in education. CSSE offers an exemplary single subject teacher education preparation program based on sound educational practice, extensive research knowledge, and commitment to the needs of diverse populations. Our faculty is comprised of internationally recognized scholars from a wide variety of subject area disciplines who study and produce current research in teacher education and curriculum studies, and who are familiar with the best practices of teachers. CSSE provides many opportunities for students to be part of a high-quality teaching and learning community.

While most of the programs in CSSE are designed for positions in public schools, students can also receive preparation in our Master of Arts in Education with a Curriculum, Teaching, and Learning concentration, applicable to a wide variety of non-teaching positions in education, government, the corporate sector, and leadership-based initiatives and programs. The Master of Arts in Education with a Curriculum, Teaching, and Learning concentration allows students to design their own program of study (area of emphasis), such as educational technology, applied pedagogy, language and literacy, STEM education, or special education.

Note: Program requirements change periodically, and current information may not be available in this catalog. For more detailed information on credentials and other education programs, please see the University’s special bulletins and the School of Education’s current program brochures and policy statements, or visit the Education website.
