- 600+ Elective in Content Area
Students must complete all program courses, including the elective content-area course. To remain eligible for continuance in the M.Ed. and to be awarded the graduate degree, students must maintain progress toward completion of the program and must have a B average (3.0 GPA) for all courses completed in the program.
Each student must complete a culminating experience; this is an independent project that integrates what he or she has learned during the five semesters of the program. The project must be completed independently of any course and will not be associated with program course credit.
Faculty Advising and Guidance
Each student will be assigned a faculty advisor who will meet with the individual student to review, approve, and provide guidance for the culminating project.
Cohort and Other Requirements
Students enroll in the M.Ed. program as members of a cohort which will complete all requirements in five semesters and two summers. So that students can continue to teach while pursuing the degree, courses are offered during the evening and/or on Saturdays.
Typically, all students in a cohort will take courses together and in the sequence prescribed by the department. New cohorts will be established based on student demand and available resources. Contact the Education Department for information on the next cohort.
Courses in the M.Ed. program are taught by those Education faculty who are members of the University of Hawaii Graduate Faculty.
