Master of Education in Differentiated Instruction

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Differentiated Instruction program is offered online and is designed to advance an educator's skill and knowledge within the teaching profession. The online program focuses on a sequence of courses that imparts knowledge and practical guidelines on how to adjust instruction in specific cases for students who need modifications in the classroom.

The online M.Ed. program consists of 36 hours and is accelerated by offering classes in 8-week terms. The majority of the courses concentrate on special education since most differentiated instruction focuses on students who have been diagnosed with learning issues and who qualify for modifications. The practices learned as part of this program can also apply to students who are unmotivated due to other issues, such as their home environment or socioeconomic concerns.
