Mission Driven

Our graduates commit to work toward creating equitable and just systems by dismantling inequitable and oppressive educational policies and structures. Our master’s program in Curriculum and Instructional Design provides teachers and administrators the understanding and strategies to develop and evaluate school curricula through this lens. The word “curriculum” comprises many areas: orientation, philosophy, design, development, implementation, assessment, and evaluation. Our graduate students delve into these areas and progress as thought leaders.

While the primary focus in our program is K-12 public school settings, you will find that the concentration is applicable to all levels as well as a variety of other fields in which curriculum is developed and utilized.
