Enroll

To enroll in the program you must be accepted by the department, then complete admission paperwork.
These courses/workshops may be used toward the completion of a master’s degree in:

  • Early Childhood Education
  • Curriculum and Instruction/Curriculum and Teaching
  • Curriculum and Instruction/Middle Childhood
  • Special Education General

(In most cases all 14 credit hours would count.)

If you anticipate completing a master’s degree (there is a six year time-frame in which to do so) we suggest that you complete a degree application.

If you already hold a master’s degree, a non-degree application will suffice.

There are other requirements for both applications. Please visit the Office of Graduate Student Services website at www.kent.edu/ehhs/services/ogs for further details or call 330-672-2576.
