MS in Education: Interdisciplinary Studies

A Master of Science in Education: Interdisciplinary Studies is available to those who have successfully completed a bachelor’s degree or a multiple- or single-subject credential program at another college or university, and whose application is approved by the Ukiah Center’s Professional Standards Committee. This degree is designed to meet the professional career needs of practicing teachers, with an emphasis on teacher-as-researcher and teacher-as-scholar. 

Classes meet selected Saturdays for master’s degree core classes, and one evening per week for special education classes.  All classes are web-enhanced through a course management system to facilitate communication between instructors and students.

30 units of coursework, directed research, and field experience are required for this degree.  Candidates complete fifteen units of coursework in special education, and 15 units of coursework in the master’s degree core.  In some cases, 6 units of equivalent coursework from an accredited teacher-preparation program would be accepted toward the completion of the 30-unit total.  The coursework must have been successfully completed within five years of applying for this program, and requires approval from the dean of the School of Education and Counseling Psychology.

Students also have the option of completing one additional 2-unit course (Supervised Teaching Seminar) and supervised teaching (5 units) to earn an Education Specialist:  Preliminary Mild/Moderate Level I Credential.
