The graduate program is designed for three semesters of full-time study and internship, requiring a Monday through Friday commitment. Applicants to the graduate program must have a bachelor's degree, meet content requirements, and pass licensure examinations.
Graduates of Wright State's Science programs in the College of Science and Mathematics, may seek admission to the Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree in the College of Education and Human Services. This graduate program is required for teacher licensure.
Prerequisite undergraduate courses in Education and co-requisite school placements are required prior to admission to the graduate program.
