MCC 18-Month Program

The Master’s Credential Cohort (MCC) Program 18-Month Program is designed to prepare effective elementary, middle and high school educators. The program emphasizes the connection between theory and practice, weaving together university-based coursework and thoughtfully designed field experiences. Candidates in the 18-month program develop the knowledge, skills and strategies needed to flourish in their own classrooms, as well as the critical habits of mind and reflective practice that will allow them to grow as educators throughout their careers. Faculty and students in the program are committed to teaching for social justice and promoting educational excellence and equity in all school settings. At the conclusion of the program, successful candidates will have earned a Master’s of Education in Curriculum and Instruction and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential.

The MCC program uses a cohort model in alignment with its vision of providing candidates with opportunities to enhance the quality of their experiences by learning from each other.
