The Department of Curriculum and Teaching at the KU School of Education offers online master's degree, graduate certificate and licensure endorsement programs that can prepare education professionals to become better teachers, develop stronger curricula, support diverse students and confront critical issues facing today's classrooms. We are consistently ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the Top 10 Best Education Schools in the country (among public universities), and our graduate program in curriculum and instruction is ranked #19 nationwide (among public universities).1 Our faculty members are widely respected for their academic research—so you'll learn tools and techniques that work, from experts who have theoretical and practical authority in their field. And our diverse faculty and student body share perspectives across racial, cultural, linguistic and socioeconomic backgrounds, preparing you to teach in an increasingly complex world yourself. You'll graduate from the Department of Curriculum and Teaching with the skills and expertise to serve as an educational leader in your classroom, your school, your district, and even on the state or national level.
Every day you teach, you inspire your students and instill in them the skills to grow into successful, independent adults.

Teachers with a master's degree often receive higher pay than those without, sometimes as much as $7,000 more per year, on average.2
