M.S. in Teaching, Learning and Curriculum: Advanced Studies

Developing advanced instructional strategies that are tailored to an individual or a specific group of learners is the basis of Drexel’s M.S. in Teaching, Learning and Curriculum: Advanced Studies. Rigorous coursework provides an overview and examination of current teaching trends and explores how these trends can be applied effectively to a broad range of educational opportunities. An additional research component allows the student to better understand how studies and trends inform one’s teaching practice.

A small and focused number of core courses and an expansive selection of concentration courses enable students to spend more time on an area of study that is important to them.


The Teaching, Learning and Curriculum program consists of 45 credits in the following areas: five core courses, two Policy, Law, and Organization courses, two research courses, and a concentration of six courses.
