Master of Arts in Education/Secondary Teacher Education
The Master of Arts in Education/Secondary Teacher Education (MAED/TED-S) is a graduate degree program preparing candidates for teacher licensure. The guiding philosophy of the MAED/TED-S program is to provide the adult student, who already has a degree in a discipline other than education, with the skills and knowledge that will allow them to become a competent and effective educator. This program focuses on secondary student learning by improving the educator’s responsibility for that learning. Each student/applicant is responsible for checking with his/her state Department of Education and/or school district to determine specific credentialing requirements. This program is not available in all states, so please check with a University of Phoenix Admissions Counselor.
