AUS has a long tradition of attracting and inspiring educators who think outside the box. Our Individualized concentration allows you to meet your own personal goals by creating a unique program from courses throughout the department and University. Explore areas that you’re curious and passionate about in order to custom-tailor an educational experience that is personally catered to what you need to excel personally and professionally. Develop the custom education master’s degree that will increase your career options in teaching, higher education staff roles, higher education administration, professional development, education consulting, and other school roles.
With the Individualized concentration, you’ll work with your faculty advisor to create a program that matches your professional goals and interests. You can design your degree with these core areas of study in mind:
- Leadership and change
- Diversity and equity
- Curriculum studies and reflective practice, or
- Inquiry and research
You can further customize your degree by including a specialty through combining courses, independent studies, and collaborative projects. In addition you can enhance your specialty by taking, graduate-level courses from our other programs (such as Psychology, Organizational Development, or Environment and Community). If you wish to enhance your degree further, consider an endorsement in areas such as Environment and Sustainability, or Library Media.
We work with you to develop the custom education master’s degree that will increase your career options in teaching and other school roles, options in higher education staff roles, higher education administration, professional development, education consulting, and more.
