What can I study at Quinnipiac University's School of Education?

The School of Education offers programs in teaching, educational leadership, instructional design and special education.

Master of Arts in Teaching

The School of Education offers two routes to the master of arts in teaching degree (MAT).

Undergraduate students enroll in our five-year BA/MAT program to earn dual degrees: a bachelor's degree, in one of the many majors available at Quinnipiac, and a master of arts in elementary or secondary education.

Students who have already earned a bachelor's degree enroll in a full-time, five-semester graduate program leading to an MAT in elementary or secondary education.

All programs combine challenging course work with supervised fieldwork and internship experiences. Courses average 15 students each and are taught by a diverse, accomplished faculty.

Leadership in Education

The School of Education also offers two educational leadership degrees: the sixth-year diploma in educational leadership and an online master's program in teacher leadership.

Instructional Design

The online graduate program in instructional design, leading to the master of science degree, prepares candidates to create effective digital materials and environments for learning, such as websites, digital games, video, audio, social media and online courses.

Special Education

The online graduate program in special education offers a deeper understanding of how students with special needs learn and how to design programs that allow these students to effectively learn together with their non-disabled peers in an inclusive settings. The certificate program in special education is a 12-credit option for MAT program teacher candidates.
