Master of Education in Teaching and Learning Application

Application for Graduate Admission

“Teaching and Learning form the Mission of Bethany College.” Bethany’s Master of Education in Teaching and Learning (M.Ed.) Program offers full-time graduate students an opportunity to study higher education from both theoretical and practical perspectives. Our Master of Education in Teaching and Learning will provide you with a broad perspective on the educational process and the best practices for teaching and learning, equip you with hands-on experiences working with students, and prepare you for leadership.

The M.Ed. program takes two academic years to complete and employs an 8-week course model designed to maximize learning while providing time for a meaningful experience as a Graduate Intern (GI) or for working adults with full-time positions.

M.Ed. is not a teacher certification program. However, one can take additional courses and Praxis tests which can lead to state certification in elementary education (K-6), multicategorical special education, physical education (K-12) or secondary education (7-12).
