Grace College offering new MED program
Grace College, Winona Lake, Indiana, is accepting applications for its new master of education program, one designed to assist teachers in becoming moral professionals and expanding their influence in classrooms, schools, and communities. Programs begin June 21, 2010.
Degree candidates should have achieved a baccalaureate degree and be licensed teachers or eligible for licensing. Other requirements include a minimum undergraduate GPA of 2.75 for all college work, completion of a formal application, three reference letters, and a personal essay.
The program features a hybrid course of study in which graduate students spend one week per year on campus at Grace, then follow their in-person instruction with online courses and classroom experience in their current teaching roles. The 36-credit-hour degree program is designed to be accomplished within two years.
Melanie Flick-Katip, a current student of the MED program, explained, “We are expected to tailor the assignments to our needs so that we can apply them to our own classrooms. Meaningful experiences and real-life examples are at the heart of the program.”
Specialty tracks include literacy, special education, leadership, a track for Christian school teachers, and a generalist program that allows students to design their own cognate area.
