Masters of Science

Under the Instruction and Curriculum concentration perspective students have two different Masters of Science degree options.

We offer an Online Master of Science degree for individuals who are already licensed and want to expand their work in their teaching areas. It is also available to individuals without licensure who desire to work in education-related settings but do not need teacher licensure. This degree is directed toward the development of competencies necessary for leadership and advancement in K-12 settings and fields related to education.

We also offer Masters of Science program that leads to state licensure for School Library Information Specialist. This program is available as an add-on endorsement for students who are already licensed and as an initial licensure program for those who are not licensed. Students who are seeking a librarian licensure for the state of TN will complete the Masters of Science in Instruction and Curriculum.
