MS Secondary Education

Master of Science in Education, Secondary

Students entering the graduate secondary education master’s degree program at IU South Bend are primarily practicing professionals in the field of secondary (middle school, junior high, and high school) education. The goal of our program is to support them as professionals and foster a commitment to acquire and use professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions to prepare them for the future.
