June 8, 2018 – Cypress, CA – Trident University International (Trident) is excited to announce improvements to its Master of Arts in Education (MAED) program. With the goal of meeting the needs of its growing student population, program learning outcomes and coursework are based on the National Policy Board for Educational Administration standards.
The newly-enhanced MAED program requires the successful completion of only 30 semester hours. This change is intended to improve the speed to graduation while lowering the overall cost to complete the degree.
Students in the MAED program can expect to be equipped with an understanding of learning, organizational management, and leadership theory. Through curricula that stresses student success, graduates are prepared to make positive changes in the field of education with an understanding of current educational practices, educational policies, and factors that benefit all students.
Concentrations available in this program include Adult Education and Training, Athletics Administration, Aviation Education, Curriculum and Instruction, Early Childhood Education, Elementary/Secondary Education Leadership, and Higher Education Leadership. The learning outcomes of each concentration are based on the professional standards in the appropriate discipline.
Trident’s MAED program is not a teacher licensure or certification program, nor does it provide administrative credentialing. Since individual state requirements vary, students are encouraged to contact their respective states for specific requirements beyond this degree.
