The Master of Arts in Education
with an Emphasis in Teaching (MEET)
MEET is a 37–42 credit MA program designed to prepare teachers for professional practice in urban schools. At the end of the first year students receive their preliminary California teaching multiple or single subject credential. After this year students teach or work in some capacity with school-aged students on a regular basis while taking seminar-style courses designed to facilitate the continued building of their inquiry stance and professional practice. Classes after the credential year of study are held late afternoon or early evening to accommodate working schedules. Post-credential students engage in a range of classroom-based research projects, which they design and conduct to build their knowledge of their students' learning and their teaching practice.
Any time within five years of completing their credential, students can enter the post-credential program. This consists of a seminar each semester which meets in the late afternoon, early evenings, and on the weekends.
