The program prepares educators for continuing professional development, education in a multicultural society and leadership for curriculum reform and renewal.

Courses

Upon entry into the program, a student is assigned an initial degree advisor. Once familiar with the C&I faculty, the student chooses a more permanent advisor or co-advisors. An individualized program of study (i.e., a prospectus) is completed with the advisor or co-advisors. The prospectus lists the required courses for the specialization or concentration.

A student may choose to take courses from any Kent State University department at the main campus or any regional campus. Up to 12 graduate credits can be transferred from accredited colleges or universities. All transferable hours are subject to approval by the student's advisor or co-advisor.
