Good Afternoon. We are delighted that you have joined us today for this virtual presentation about several graduate programs in ECU’s College of Education. I am Dr. Terry Atkinson, Graduate Director for the programs we’ll be talking about. The presentation will be brief and provide you will general information about these programs, which we hope you will share with others. Most of our new students hear about our graduate programs from our current students and graduates, so this presentation is meant to provide you with a link to share with your current and future colleagues and with an opportunity to ask questions via Centra. Let’s begin by seeing who is with us today for this Centra presentation.
The programs we’ll be focusing on today are the Master of Arts in Education (for those holding initial teaching license). Just FYI, the COE does offer a Master of Arts in Teaching (in a variety of areas) for individuals who do not hold an initial teaching license). We’ll talk briefly about each of the MAEd programs and then have time for your questions.
