Education Degrees

At AIU, we understand that education isn’t just your career; it’s your calling. While technology, common core standards and individual instruction plans have changed the way you teach, they haven’t changed why you teach. With a Master of Education degree from AIU, you can gain the skills and knowledge you need to continue to touch the lives of students and fulfill your dedication to lifelong learning.

AIU’s Master of Education (M.Ed.) degrees with specializations in elementary and secondary education are designed for certified teachers who want to build upon their previous educational or classroom experience. Our other M.Ed. degree specializations are designed for both teachers and education professionals who want to enhance their education in their field. AIU’s Master of Education degrees in Elementary and Secondary Education are among the few M.Ed. programs to integrate adaptive learning throughout the entire curriculum.1 AIU’s M.Ed. program does not provide teacher certification.
