The Master of Arts in Education (MAE) is an on-going Summer Intensive Program (SIP) enabling candidates to earn a graduate degree in three to six summers. It is available to candidates who have completed their undergraduate degree and possess a preliminary or clear multiple subject or single subject credential with preparation that includes teaching English learners and special needs candidates.
The MAE program is grounded in
