Earlham's M.Ed. program is for college graduates who want to enter or further their career in education. Like the M.A.T. program, the M.Ed. program leads to a master's degree, but it does not lead to additional licensure. The traditional program follows an 11-month sequence (June to May), and there is also a two-year option for candidates who prefer a less time-intensive commitment.
The M.Ed. is an individualized and comprehensive program that allows students to apply the theory from their master's courses directly into their chosen fieldwork. M.Ed. candidates complete a summer practicum and a year-long practicum, both of which have the option of being job-embedded. Flexibility and individual attention are key features of the M.Ed. program; faculty and students work together to ensure that coursework and fieldwork are relevant to the candidate's career focus and schedule.
