Curry offers a unique combination of features including:
Hybrid/Blended Cohort Model
We know how much you juggle multiple priorities everyday. It was important to us to design a program that would fit comfortably into your busy schedule. All classes are delivered in a hybrid/blended format, combining in-class and online activities. You'll be part of a cohort, which means that you'll study with the same group of professionals. Cohort learning groups have proven to be very effective for adult learners; they create a community of professionals who can study together, provide support, discuss common on-the-job problems, and offer networking opportunities.
Learn with Exceptional Faculty
Most of our faculty have taught in the public schools and then advanced to serve as principals, special education directors, math department chairs, and in other leadership positions in public education. Our faculty understand both the theories behind effective teaching and the day-to-day realities of today's schools, ensuring students receive an education grounded in both theory and in practice.
Know your schedule in advance
Curry's M.Ed. cohorts meet the same evening each week throughout the program. Occasional Saturday classes and special activities are announced well in advance so you can plan ahead and help maintain balance while you pursue an advanced degree.
