Strayer University’s Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment degree is valuable for any educator looking to further his or her goals in a career in education.
For K-12 teachers, earning a master’s in education may lead to a pay raise or promotion opportunity (department chair or faculty mentor). For those who want to teach in higher education, holding a graduate degree is a requirement. For all who work to educate children and adults, earning a master’s degree in education offers the opportunity to hone skills, stay current on the latest trends in the field, and serve students more effectively.
[Note: In many school districts, a master’s in education can lead to salary increases or opportunities for advancement. Usually, certified teachers may pursue master’s degrees at any accredited school.
