Graduate Program

Minot State University now offers fully online and fully face-to-face options in the Master of Education Program. With courses offered every eight weeks, our M.Ed candidates can focus on one class at a time and still graduate in two years. Our M.Ed program includes 18 credits worth of core courses, offered in the regular school year, geared to provide practical support toward educational practices. As it takes at least 30 credits to earn a Master of Education, most M.Ed candidates take their remaining credits as concentrations. Concentration courses are typically offered in the summer. Some M.Ed candidates choose not to have a concentration, and this “self-design” option allows for any 12 graduate-level credits to count toward the remaining aspect of the degree. Our fully-online concentrations include: Curriculum and Assessment and Special Education. We also offer additional concentrations in Art, Business, English, Math, and Reading; however, these options require some time on campus. While our M.Ed program is designed for practicing classroom teachers, we welcome coaches and other educators outside of the traditional classroom. Some M.Ed candidates have sought initial teacher licensure, to which our core courses can help address, but our M.Ed program alone does not meet state teacher licensure or certification requirements.
