This program of study is available only to candidates admitted to the preservice MAT in Elementary—Multiple Subjects or Secondary programs who, in consultation with their cohort coordinator or content area coordinator and the director of the program, determine the candidate will not complete the portion of their program leading to a teaching license but will complete a master's degree. A request to transfer into this degree program must be approved by the appropriate program director and by the teacher education department chair.
Master of Education in Educational Studies
The Master of Education in Educational Studies program is individualized based upon the progress the candidate has made in the Master of Arts in Teaching program. The MEd in Educational Studies does not lead to Lewis & Clark's recommendation for an Oregon Preliminary Teaching License or to a recommendation for an out-of-state teaching license. Candidates who enroll in the MEd program will not earn an MAT.
