Cedarville, Ohio—Cedarville University’s master of education degree (M.Ed.) has been approved by the Ohio Board of Regents. The degree meets all Ohio standards for offering a credible, focused education. Designed to help teachers in both private and public schools, Cedarville’s M.Ed. program allows students to meet their professional and personal goals in a rigorous, technologically-sophisticated, faith-based community. The program builds on Cedarville University’s already well-recognized undergraduate education program strengths of preparing teachers with the practical skills necessary for excellent teaching. The M.Ed. has been under development for two years, in which time a professional development program at a Summer Teaching Institute and one-hour seminar courses at several Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) conventions helped establish the program. Cedarville’s M.Ed. is unique in several ways. Dr. Sharon Johnson, director of graduate programs, explained, “All courses are taught from a Christian world-and-life framework. In addition, students take a core set of courses while choosing from a variety of options related to different career fields in education, such as educational administration and curriculum design. Third, all students will complete a practicum, which is a master’s-level research and development project targeted to making program improvements in their own schools.” For information about the M.Ed., contact Dr. Steve Gruber, M.Ed. program coordinator, at 937-766-4496.
