Areas of Emphasis

Master of Education in Leadership, Teaching, and Learning

To complete an area of emphasis with a Master of Education in Leadership, Teaching, and Learning, students must first complete core courses and then choose their area of emphasis that has emerged in response to areas identified as high need in the state or districts requiring more preparation.

Why is it Important?

An area of emphasis is essential in the education world because it allows practicing teachers to focus their attention on a specific teaching area. By focusing that attention, teachers with an endorsement or National Board Certification have the opportunity and the newfound skills to improve their students’ achievement. 

An area of emphasis is also important if teachers are looking to move up on the pay scale or take on new roles inside their school or school district.
