Education at Aquinas College

Master in Education (M.Ed.)

The M.Ed. graduate program provides the opportunity for individuals holding a bachelor’s degree to enter the teaching field. This program leads to initial secondary (grades 6-12) teacher certification and is best suited to individuals who have completed or are close to completing “teachable” majors/minors. (A list of approved majors/minors can be found here.) At this time, elementary teacher certification is not an available option through this M.Ed. program.

Prospective M.Ed. students must have passing SAT scores prior to full admission.

Testing information and study materials can be found at Testing Information.  Additionally, candidates must achieve passing scores on associated Michigan Teacher Tests for Certification (MTTC) subject area examinations before they can be recommended for certification by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE).

Once course work required for all majors/minors has been completed, graduate students can typically complete the M.Ed. program in a year and half if attending full-time. M.Ed. candidates must complete all degree requirements within five years of enrollment in their first graduate education course.

Interested applicants can schedule an advising appointment by selecting Advising Graduate Appointment.
