Teachers and others in the education field can learn more about the master of education in teaching and curriculum degree, and a number of graduate certificates offered at Penn State York during two information sessions at the campus: from 4 to 6 p.m. Oct. 30 and Nov. 1, in the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center.  The sessions are free and open to the public.

The 30-credit master of education degree in teaching and curriculum is designed to enhance the skills of teachers for public and private schools. The program focuses on three essential components -- curriculum, instruction and assessment -- that contribute to the organization’s philosophy of learning, nurturance and scholarship. Courses are designed to reflect the standards of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

Information at the sessions will also be offered on the English as a Second Language Program Specialist Program certificate, the Reading Specialist Certificate for Teachers, Early Childhood certifications and the Early Childhood Director’s Credential. Graduate programs at Penn State York are offered in partnership with Penn State Harrisburg.
