There are currently two 18-credit graduate programs, “Teaching in the 21st Century Differentiated Classroom” and “Closing the Achievement Gap through Standards-Based Curriculum.” Each program consists of six three-credit courses that can be taken separately.

Credits are applicable toward Bachelors +18 or Masters +18, as well as salary increase and recertification. For more information, visit
