This concentration provides direct training and experience in the art and science of teaching at the college level, balanced with sufficient (i.e., 18 credit hours) graduate-level course work in a particular field. A master's degree is unlikely to provide sufficient educational background for a tenure-track position, but it can open the door to serving as an instructor or adjunct at a 4-year college/university or as a full-time instructor at a community college or junior college. (Note that matching the focus of this concentration with your undergraduate major will increase the chances of being selected to teach at the college level.)
