TEACH ARIZONA -- Become certified to teach grades 6-12 and earn a master’s degree in one year!
Providing a unique blend of theoretical study and extensive real-world training, the Teach Arizona Master of Education (M. Ed.) program is the perfect path for passionate, dedicated professionals, like you, who are interested in becoming a well-prepared, expertly trained high school or middle school teacher. The one-year program takes a holistic approach to teacher preparation that is unique in higher education. Students explore critical facets of education theory and practice in Teach Arizona classes and gain practical experience as student teachers. Instead of offering full-time classroom study followed by a full-time field experience, the program offers these two learning opportunities simultaneously, making it possible for students to immediately apply what they have learned in their graduate education courses to their secondary school classrooms. Our graduates consistently report that this structure enhances their ability to teach effectively both during the program and beyond.
