The UH Hilo School of Education provides pre-service and in-service teachers with high quality, integrated, inquiry-and field-based professional development, serves as a resource to area educators who are meeting the challenges of teaching in a culturally rich, technologically advanced society, and conducts as well as guides action research to expand knowledge of teaching and learning.
The School of Education offers:
- An 18-credit undergraduate Certificate in Educational Studies, which does not lead to teacher licensure, but provides foundational coursework to those who are interested in pursuing education-related careers.
- A 36-credit Master of Arts in Teaching Program (MAT) campus-based (Elementary and Secondary) format which leads to initial licensure in the State of Hawaii.
- A 30-credit Master of Education Program (M.Ed.) primarily distance based format for the professional development of in-service teachers.
The UH Hilo School of Education is dedicated to the holistic development of transformational educators who are committed to equity, empowerment, and a critical understanding of our world. The School envisions its future as the heart of a learning community of caring, ethical, and creative people.
