The Department of Teacher Education (EDT) offers both Master of Education (M.Ed.) and Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) degrees. Some of the graduate programs in EDT lead to teaching or supervisory licensure by the Ohio Department of Education. The Department also offers a variety of graduate-level courses and workshops for in-service education and professional development of school personnel who may not be interested in degree programs.

Admission Requirements

To receive graduate credit for courses taken, you must be admitted to the Graduate School. Admission to non-degree study requires Graduate School admission with continuing non-degree graduate standing. Admission to any of the master’s degree programs requires:     

  1. Acceptance by the Graduate School.
  2. Program Admission Requirements for EDT:
    1. Essay
    2. Resume
    3. GRE (MAT applicants only)
    4. TOEFL (if English is not your native language)
    5. Two recommendations

For all programs, apply through the Graduate School at www.MiamiOH.edu/graduate-studies. You will submit an application, application fee, and official transcripts along with the documents required by the department, which are listed above.  For further information or questions you may contact the EDT department at edtgraduateprogram@MiamiOH.edu.

When the Graduate School notifies the department that you have been admitted with appropriate standing, you will be informed of your admission status and assigned an academic advisor by the department.

General Requirements

Following program admission, you will need to develop a plan of study with your advisor’s assistance. You must file a copy of this plan, approved by your advisor, with the department within two months of admission to the degree program. If a plan of study has not been submitted within the required time, it could result in an inability to complete the degree in a timely manner. Your plan must satisfy requirements for your area of emphasis, your division, the Graduate School, and the university. At least 15 semester hours must be earned in 600-level courses or above.

You may make substitutions in your plan, provided that each is consistent with these requirements, is approved by a petition through your advisor, and is filed with the department office as an amended plan of study prior to registration for the substitute course.

A final comprehensive master's presentation defense is required during the last term of course-work for your program. As you approach the completion of graduate course-work in your approved plan of study, consult with your advisor to complete the following required components. The defense will be administered by a committee of three faculty selected by you and your advisor, including at least one other member of the Department of Teacher Education.

M.Ed. in Transformative Education

Transformative Education is a Master of Education program jointly administered by the Departments of Teacher Education and Educational Leadership. It prepares educators to provide leadership in transforming teaching and learning in schools and communities. The program emphasizes educational sustainability—creating, nurturing, and continuing effective teaching and learning environments—through the inclusion of both a responsiveness to the specific needs and interests of individual educators and a foundation of shared learning (multicultural education, curriculum, leadership, and data-informed decision making). The program blends a core set of courses that encompass important educational issues with a choice of concentrations that provide both conceptual and practical benefits for educators and the students they serve, giving educators the capacity to synthesize research with knowledge of their students to make professional decisions. The program aims to develop educators who are innovative scholar-practitioners, collaborative leaders, and advocates for equity and social justice.

The M.Ed. in Transformative Education is open to both students with existing teaching licensure and those who do not have an existing license. This degree does not lead to initial license to teach.

Master of Arts in Teaching Programs (M.A.T.)

Adolescent Education (Grades 7-12)

Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) programs combine graduate and undergraduate study and enables a student with a baccalaureate degree to earn teaching licensure and a master’s degree in approximately four or five semesters of full-time study, depending upon academic background, experience, and teaching field.

Program Requirements

Requirements consist of

  1. general requirements, common to all M.A.T. programs,
  2. content course requirements and retention requirements, specific to each licensure area and
  3. successful completion of benchmarks established for program accreditation compliance.
  4. passing score on the OAE content test for the licensure area and passing score on the OAE pedagogy test.

A student who has satisfied all or most of the content course requirements can expect to complete an M.A.T. program in four semesters or in three semesters and one summer; others can expect that additional semesters will be necessary in proportion to the number of content courses that must be satisfied.

Admission

In addition to admission requirements previously listed for all master’s programs within the department, candidates must have a baccalaureate degree.

Cohort

We encourage anyone with a degree who wants to be a teacher to contact us about our MAT programs. When you are admitted to the program, you are automatically admitted to the cohort. A cohort is a group of students in a common teaching field, taking the same methods courses and student teaching in specific academic years.

A cohort is identified by its general subject area and an academic year; for example, integrated mathematics 2017-18, English language arts 2018-19, and chemistry education 2016-17 are separate cohorts. The cohort year indicates the academic year the student is scheduled for methods courses, and the following academic year when the student is scheduled for student teaching.

You should schedule a pre-application counseling appointment with the Department of Teacher Education coordinator of advising, 513-529-6443. The coordinator will examine your transcript and advise you about your application, estimate time to complete the degree, and cohort year.
