transformation


From the Dean

At the Drake School of Education, we prepare world-class teachers and educational leaders. With more than 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students, we’re one of the largest schools of education in the Midwest— and for good reason. We have an exceptional record of preparing highly effective elementary and secondary teachers, school counselors, principals, superintendents, and specialists working in training and organizational development in the corporate and nonprofit sectors. At the same time, we don’t let our size compromise our commitment to providing an intimate learning environment that fosters close connections between students and faculty. Although you are always welcome to visit our website or call the office, we are offering this print version of our fall catalog for additional convenience. Our graduate degree and endorsement classes are offered in the evenings and on weekends in various locations on and off campus or on the Web. This fall we are starting a new Master of Science in Leadership Development (MSLD ) degree (see page 8). This program, replacing the Adult Learning and Organizational Performance (ALOP ) degree, is designed to meet the needs of emerging and aspiring leaders who wish to better understand their own leadership strengths, identify areas of development, or expand their leadership capacity within their organizations. Professionals interested in furthering their studies through the MSLD program may select one of the following three emphasis areas or may choose a more flexible multidisciplinary track: Human Resource Management, Human Resource Development, or Student Services within Higher Education. On behalf of our student-centered faculty and staff, I welcome you to start or continue your education and begin your transformation at Drake.

Janet M. McMahill, Ph.D.

Master of Science in Teaching

Master of Arts in Teaching

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Master of Science in Teaching is designed for individuals with an undergraduate degree in a field outside of education but want to obtain teaching certification at the elementary level (k-8). This degree is one of just a few programs that allows you to earn an elementary teaching certificate at the master’s degree level.

The Master of Arts in Teaching degree is designed for individuals who hold undergraduate degrees in a field outside of education, but would like to obtain teaching certification at the middle or high school level.

This program is designed for working professionals. Most courses required for the first part of the program can be taken in an evening format, so you can continue to work. The methods courses, which comprise the middle section of the program, are taught primarily during the day. Full-time study is also an option. In addition to courses needed to receive a teaching license, you will fulfill requirements for at least one endorsement area. An adviser will help you determine which undergraduate courses may count toward an endorsement. Required credit hours vary per endorsement and depend on transferrable undergraduate credits. The Master of Science in Teaching and the Master of Arts in Teaching programs can be initiated in the fall, spring, or summer terms.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Drake offers the newest master’s degree in literacy education in the state of Iowa to meet a growing and critical need. The program is designed for teachers and other educators who desire to lead literacy initiatives, become literacy coaches, develop curriculum, serve as master teachers, and learn new strategies and techniques to assist students struggling in the classroom.

The middle school endorsement is an add-on endorsement to the Iowa General Elementary Endorsement (k-6) license or the Iowa Secondary Level Endorsements (7-12).

The program emphasizes contemporary skills in literacy education and research. Coursework comprises seven core classes. The Master of Science in Literacy Education is a 32credit-hour program. Seven 3-credit-hour core courses are required for all students. To complete the remaining credits, students may add a reading or reading specialist endorsement. In some cases, students may be able to transfer credits already earned. Program Highlights A team of Drake and local literacy leaders created this innovative degree. Courses are held on evenings and weekends, with opportunity for face-to-face instruction and web-based activities and discussion. $1,500 scholarships may be available.
