UVEI master’s degree programs draw on the three pillars of experiential learning, competency based assessments, and inquiry that connects theory and practice – the same three pillars that form the basis for our long standing Teacher Internship Program and newer licensure programs for school leaders and literacy educators. We offer degree pathways for practicing educators, current candidates in our licensure programs, and alums of our licensure programs. Degrees typically take 1-2 years to complete but courses of study are personalized to meet your individual situation and can be spread out over a longer time if appropriate. Degrees consist of demonstrating core and advanced competency in teaching and/or leadership, and pursuing an action research project in your school setting.
