Truman State University's Bold Teacher Education Transformation: The M.A.E.
Ragland, Joyce C.; Grow, Janice
The Master of Arts in Education (M.A.E.) program was created when Truman State University (then Northeast Missouri State University) was designated the state's premier liberal arts and sciences university and most of the undergraduate and graduate programs in education were phased out. The rigorous program is heavily field-based with extensive cooperation and collaboration in public schools involving small town, rural, and urban settings with a variety of populations to ensure a wide range of experiences for students. A major internship is part of the program. To strengthen the M.A.E. interns as scholars, a research component is coupled with the internship resulting in action research or a publishable paper. The program is highly selective in admissions and the placement rate for graduates ranges by major from 80 to 100 percent. (ND)
