Master of Education in Elementary Education


Thank you for your interest in the Master of Education in Elementary Education, offered by The School of Education and Psychology, through the Department of Education. Our Master of Education in Elementary Education degree program consists of thirty-six (36) credit hours, minimum, which includes a culminating action research project. As identified in our unit's conceptual framework, the Teacher Education Program at Elizabeth City State University represents the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that we believe to be essential for effective teaching and decision making, attained through a collaborative relationship between the University, the Local Education Agency, the Community, and Family. The conceptual framework also directs the teacher education program by informing the decisions that faculty make regarding teaching and evaluation. Toward this end, our conceptual framework identifies three types of knowledge: content knowledge, professional knowledge, and pedagogical knowledge, that candidates in our program will attain. In addition, successful candidates will demonstrate the six skills, which are reflective practitioners, advocators of diversity, effective facilitators, critical thinkers, proficient technology users, and competent evaluators.

We welcome the opportunity to meet with you and further discuss our intriguing Master of Education in Elementary Education degree program.
