CCU’s Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction (MACI) offers a variety of program options, ranging from 36 credit hours to 39 credit hours, to help tailor your master's degree to your specific educational goals. The scope and sequence of courses are planned to provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary for success in your professional field. In the final performance-based assessment, the capstone, you must demonstrate proficiency in instructional design and its delivery methodologies.
If you have completed a teacher education program through CCU’s College of Adult and Graduate Studies, you may apply graduate credits completed through that program toward a MACI degree.
Students who have not completed a teacher education program through CCU's College of Adult and Graduate Studies may earn a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction by completing the 27 credits in the Professional Core Requirements as well as 9 elective credits. All students complete a final, semester-long capstone course after all other MACI coursework has been completed, for a total of 36 credits in the MACI degree.
Graduate-level certificates are offered in conjunction with CCU's MACI program. Each certificate program consists of three 3-credit courses for a total of nine credits.
