Admission to M.A. Curriculum and Instruction Program

Admission to the master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction program is selective. Applicants are evaluated on the basis of previous academic performance, personal and professional accomplishments and goals, and strength of professional disposition qualities. Each applicant is carefully evaluated for his or her ability to contribute to the program. A strong desire to complete graduate-level work in a Christ-centered, biblically based community is important.

Application Deadlines

You can enter the Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction program at multiple points in the academic year. You should complete the admission process as early as possible so you will have adequate time to work with an advisor and qualify for financial aid.

  • Submit your resume or Curriculum Vitae through the online application process.
  • Submit your program-specific essay through the online application process.
