Curriculum Studies & Secondary Education Department


The Department of Curriculum Studies and Secondary Education is dedicated to the advancement of excellence in education. CSSE offers an exemplary Single Subject teacher education preparation program based on sound educational practice, extensive research knowledge, and sensitivity to the needs of diverse populations. Our faculty is comprised of internationally recognized scholars from a wide variety of subject area disciplines who study and produce current research in teacher education and curriculum studies, and who are familiar with the best practices of teachers. CSSE has partnerships with many local middle and high schools that provide many opportunities for students to be part of a high quality teaching and learning community.

While most of the programs in CSSE are designed for positions in public schools, students can also receive preparation in our Master of Arts in Curriculum Teaching and Learning, applicable to a wide variety of non-teaching positions in education, government, and the corporate sector.
