The subject matter fields for the M.Ed. in secondary education are English, French, mathematics, science, and social studies. The programs are designed to meet the needs of those who already hold a level-4 certificate. The student follows the same subject matter areas of concentration in which the level-4 certificate was earned. The 36-hour programs include courses in professional education, specialty content, and approved electives. Applicants must have or meet eligibility requirements for level-4 certification in the same teaching field with at least a 2.7 GPA, at least 400 on verbal and 400 on analytical or quantitative sections of GRE tests taken before October 2002. Tests taken after October 2002 require verbal and quantitative scores and a minimum GRE analytical writing test score of 3.5, and a program of study developed by an advisor.
