The Master of Education culminates with two courses: either EDGR 698-Action Research (3), or EDGR 699-Thesis (3). Either option provides candidates with an understanding of the role of research in the field of education as a tool to solve problems and as a way to improve student learning.
Action Research is the capstone project for the Master of Education program.
