Program Learning Outcomes

GSEP is committed to a learner-centered approach in the programs we offer. Each program has a set of objectives that a student graduating from the program is expected to achieve. The knowledge and skills taught in the program might be introduced in some courses. In other courses, students are asked to apply knowledge by practicing skills and demonstrating their abilities. Within the program, the values and dispositional attributes important for individuals entering the profession are emphasized.

There are five pathways within the MAE program:

  • MAE for Teacher Preparation;
  • MAE: Educational Psychology;
  • MAE: Literacy;
  • MAE: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM);
  • MAE: Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).

The matrices below list the program learning objectives and indicates the courses in which each of the objectives is addressed.
