Wilson College expands M.Ed. program

March 02, 2009

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Wilson College is expanding its Master of Education (M.Ed.) program to accept female and male secondary school teachers, the school announced last week.

The M.Ed. program was available to students teaching kindergarten through sixth grade.

The M.Ed. program is targeted toward certified elementary, and now secondary, teachers seeking a professional, advanced degree.

The degree expansion was approved Feb. 20 by the Wilson College Board of Trustees and comes one year after the master of education program was established at Wilson. It replaced a master of arts in teaching first offered in 2006.

Several additional courses will be added to the curriculum to accommodate secondary school teachers, according to Dr. William Shoemaker, director of the M.Ed. program. "We are accepting applicants now for summer courses," he said.

Courses in the M.Ed. program are offered at Wilson and off-campus sites throughout the year, including both summer terms.

The master's degree complements Wilson's successful Teacher Intern Program (TIP), which helps those with bachelor's degrees in non-teaching majors become certified teachers.
