Follow your calling to excellence in teaching with a Master of Arts in Education (MAED) degree at Bluefield College. In the MAED program, you will enhance your skills as a teacher and elevate your approach to curriculum design. Choose between a 30-credit program for teachers or a 36-credit program that leads to initial Virginia teacher licensure in biology, career and technical education, business, information technology, history and social studies, music, theater, or visual arts education.
You will learn strategies for assessing and evaluating student work, approaches to curriculum design, and foundations of special education. Select from innovative courses like leading trauma-informed classes and social-emotional learning in the restorative classroom, or focus on teaching strategies and classroom management. Students seeking initial licensure will complete a field experience and student teaching internship. The culmination of the program is an action research project where you can explore a topic that interests you.
Do you want to be the best educator possible? The MAED program at Bluefield College helps you build skills to improve not only your teaching but also the learning experiences of the young people in your classes. Opportunities for educators are available in public schools, private schools, online teaching, and community service agencies. After completing your MAED, you will be prepared to study at the doctoral level.
