The Master of Education Program develops breadth of understanding of higher and postsecondary education, though emphasizing particular domains of study and practice, among them, academic learning and development, organizational and institutional processes, and social and comparative perspectives. Students in the Ed.M. Program typically use these offerings to elaborate and deepen their experience-based knowledge and intellectual interests in policymaking, curriculum development, student development, etc. Ed.M. students conclude their programs of study by writing an integrative paper focused on a particular topic of professional and personal interest and drawing on the knowledge resources availed by the three curricular domains.
