Master of Arts in Education, Academics | Earlham College Skip to Content

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.
