The Graduate Program

The Education Department at College of Idaho offers graduate programs leading to two Master degrees, a certification-only internship, and two courses of study leading to endorsements.

The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT), is for new teachers who wish to attain certification in Idaho while also completing graduate work.

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Curriculum and Instruction with endorsement in Bilingual Education or teaching students in English as a New Language, is intended for teachers who have attained certification. Both the MAT and M.Ed. degree programs provide opportunity for candidates to contribute to the knowledge base of education through action research.

The Certification-only program is for students who wish to be certified teachers in Idaho but who do not wish to complete the MAT degree.

For those certified teachers who wish to complete additional endorsements in Bilingual Education or English as a New Language, but who do not wish to complete the M.Ed. degree, we offer endorsement-only programs.
