Master of Arts in Education

The Master of Arts in Education builds upon the instructional expertise, leadership qualities, and skills of experienced educators. The programs are aligned with the INTASC Principles and the NCDPI competencies required for licensure. The programs include rigorous academic preparation in and implementation of the latest research on human development and learning. Consequently, reflective practice becomes an integral component which supports the Gardner-Webb conceptual framework. Active participation in a program allows students to develop further those competencies essential to professional education and continued self-improvement, thus exemplifying the model of the Educator as Theorist and Practitioner.


Upon successful completion of a graduate program in education, students who hold initial licensure will be recommended for the North Carolina graduate license in the appropriate licensure area.
