Drexel University's School of Education (SoE) offers an entirely new approach to obtaining a graduate degree, allowing the student total flexibility to study the topics most relevant to their career growth. The Master of Educational Improvement and Transformation is structured around Professional Development Concentration Sets on topics that are timely, appropriate and immediately applicable to today's educator. This unique master's degree prepares students to lead significant initiatives in formal and informal education sectors.
Professional Development Concentration Sets
The Set topics are of paramount importance to today's educators: Creativity & Innovation, Educational Policy, Evaluation & Assessment, Leadership in Educational Settings, Learning Technologies, and Urban Education.
Students work with their advisor to develop a course of study that is grounded in their specific career goals, taking a total of four for 36 credits. A course on Evaluation and Assessment, as well as a Capstone Project are required for completion.
EIT Degree Options
The Concentration Sets are also offered as Professional Development Certificates, for those students who have a desire for a particular skill set but are unable to commit to a degree program immediately. Credits earned in the certificate program may then be applied to the master's degree when the student is ready and upon acceptance.*
School of Education students have a long history of being motivated, determined, and innovative. These strong characteristics and their desire for lifelong learning have resulted in this unique approach to earning a graduate degree.
*A Drexel University certificate is issued for each completed certificate program prior to enrolling in the master's degree. Once enrolled, certificates are not issued to students in the degree program who have completed each Concentration Set.
