1 STUDENT GUIDELINES FOR THE MASTER OF EDUCATION (M.ED.) MASTER OF ARTS (M.A.) IN TEACHING, LEARNING, AND CURRICULUM Department of Teacher Education Texas Woman s University (940)

2 Welcome to the Master s in Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum degree program! Degree/Research Options You have the option of pursuing the Master of Education (M.Ed.) or Master of Arts (M.A.). While the majority of the degree program is the same, the research component will differ. Completion of the M.Ed. may be fulfilled with the development of a professional paper on a topic related to one s teaching field/area of interest and may take a variety of forms. The M.A. requires an additional 6 hours of research and the completion of a thesis. Both require an indepth literature review and evidence of strong writing skills. Discuss this research choice with your advisor as you begin the program. Outline of Degree Program You will find this near the end of this packet. It includes information on the purpose of this degree, the required course work and the various options open to you for the additional hours in one or more of the specialization strands. Two strands, Bilingual and English as a Second Language and Special Education, offer the possibility of adding an additional certification to your existing initial certificate. If that is your goal, it is recommended that at least four courses be taken from the same specialization area to ensure as firm a foundation as possible with a new teaching field and to maximize preparation for the state examination over that field. You will need to work closely with your advisor in the selection of those courses. For other students, it is also recommended that at least four courses be taken from the same specialization area so that some concentration is preserved. For students desiring to teach at community colleges, they may need as many as 18 semester hours in a single subject area. Please note: no grade lower than B may be used toward this degree. Admission is granted for not more than one academic year. Students who do not attend the University during the period of their admission must reapply. ( Graduate Catalog, p. 61). Sample Degree Plan This is found on the page following the program document. You and your advisor will discuss course options according to your goals and interests and then complete the Graduate School degree plan form shown or in the online version. This will be filed in the Graduate School. If any changes are made in your program prior to graduation, a Change of Degree Plan form must be filed with the Graduate School. Pre- and Post-test Assessments of Program We are interested in receiving feedback from our students as they go through this program. As you enter, you will be asked to take a pre-test over your perceptions of your knowledge of the four core areas addressed in this degree: human diversity, assessment, learning theory, and curriculum. 2

3 Near the end of the program you will be asked to take a post-test over the same areas. The results of these tests and other measures will help us to evaluate our program and make changes where needed. Important Web Sites As you get closer to the end of your program, you will need to be thinking about the research component (professional paper or thesis) and graduation requirements. The TWU Graduate School s web site is an excellent resource. The web site listed below contains many helpful resources. Graduation Deadlines from the above site lists a number of forms that need to be submitted prior to graduation along with the deadlines for that particular semester. Select Forms from the menu on the left of the Graduate School site for those needed. Another helpful site from the above link for students beginning their graduate research is TWU s Guide to Preparation and Processing of Dissertations, Theses, and Professional Papers. Professional Paper/Thesis The rubric on the following pages may help to guide you as you enter the research phase of your program. It may serve as a vehicle for you and your major professor to discuss strengths as well as areas of your paper/thesis process that pose challenges. The TWU Library and TWU Write Site are excellent resources before and during this process. The following are links to specific areas within these resources: APA 6 th edition format and RefWorks RefWorks is a web-based citation management program that enables you to: download, gather, and store references from databases; automatically format citations and bibliographies in seconds; and connect to your RefWorks account anywhere there is web access. Plagiarism Tutorial Write Site Scholarly Journal/Peer-Reviewed Source Definition and Examples 3

4 Criteria for Graduate Research The following tables are designed to assist the student in preparing elements of the Professional Paper or Thesis and may be used in evaluating progress toward satisfactory completion of that requirement.
