6 units of ECI 699 for the research, writing, and oral defense of an approved thesis
(Please note that if you choose the thesis option you may end up taking more than the 6 units of thesis credit you can count toward your degree because you must register for ECI 699 each semester while you are working on your thesis. Also note that preparing a thesis generally requires one semester of residency, in fall, spring, or summer.)
Please be aware that at least fifty percent of your courses must be at the 600 level or above. In addition, you must be admitted to this degree program before taking your last 12 units of graduate work.
Candidates in the M.Ed. in Elementary Education Continuing Professional program are required to demonstrate content knowledge, pedagogical knowledge and skills, and professional knowledge to be eligible to graduate from this program. In addition to course grades, content, pedagogical, and professional knowledge or skills are demonstrated through candidate performance on key assessments embedded in the ECI 620 or ECI 675 class.
Courses are offered during fall, spring, and summer in Flagstaff and at statewide locations.
