The Curriculum and Instruction major is designed to further the professional development of teachers who wish to improve their teaching knowledge and skills for greater effectiveness in the classroom. This program challenges teachers to strengthen their professional knowledge and skills in curriculum planning, learning theory, teaching methodology, integration of technology, and to base instructional decisions on assessment data, learner developmental and contextual needs, and current research on learning, cognition, and socio-cultural aspects of instruction.

Graduate coursework and the Capstone Project are designed to prepare teachers to maximize the potential of every child and to take a leadership role at the school or district level to assure that the learning needs of all students are met.
