The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Education Department announces the start of a new Master of Education Cohort for the spring 2010 semester. The program has graduated four cohorts and is accepting applications for its fifth cohort with a deadline of October 15, 2009.

The M.Ed. program fosters professional growth and renewal of educators who currently teach in public and private schools. The program enrolls educators from across the state, enabling them to analyze and apply current initiatives, including reform movements, educational technology, and methods of addressing the needs of Hawaiʻi’s diverse student populations.

The M.Ed. is a 30-33-semester-hour program designed to foster professional growth and renewal of licensed teachers. The cohort program requires five semesters and two summers to complete, with courses offered on Wednesday evenings and special summer sessions.
