MASTER OF SCIENCE IN EDUCATION
UW Oshkosh offers a unique and specialized Master of Science in Education (MSE) that allows students to customize the degree program to their specific academic area of interest. In the program, educators will complete:
- Four courses in educational research (12 credits)
- Six elective courses in a content area (18 credits)
High school teachers who satisfy all requirements for the MSE degree will meet HLC accreditation requirements for the Cooperative Academic Enrollment Program (CAPP) concurrent enrollment program at UW Oshkosh and may meet requirements for similar programs at other in institutions.
Up to nine graduate courses of content course work from institutions other than UW Oshkosh can be transferred to meet the 18 credit requirement. Students can find options for graduate courses at the links shown below.
CONTENT AREA CREDITS (18 CREDITS)
Educators who are in the MSE program or who already have their master’s degree can pursue their 18 content-specific credits through UW Oshkosh. Not all online HLC compliant graduate courses are aligned with MSE capable areas of study.
The following content areas are offered:
- UW Oshkosh course catalog (select Guests: Search Classes)
