The Master of Science in Education offers two concentrations: TESOL, and Literacy and Applied Linguistics. They are designed to build appropriate knowledge and skills in particular areas within the broad field of education. These concentrations are built around a core curriculum consisting of 3-credit courses in the psychological and sociological foundations of education, general methods of teaching, and reading. All candidates for this master’s degree are required to complete the 6 core and 6 required courses for a particular concentration.
Graduate Admissions General Requirements
All applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from an accredited college or university prior to enrollment. The Admissions Committee considers all applicants for admission on the basis of their academic record, personal and professional accomplishments, motivation, talents, recommendations, personal statement, and test results, as applicable. Some programs require an interview. Applicants may be required to submit the results of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), the Graduate Management Test (GMAT), the Miller Analogies Test (MAT), and/or the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), International English Language Testing System (IELTS), or Level of English Proficiency (LOEP) pre-test to assess English skills.
International students must meet all general admission requirements and fulfill additional requirements
At St. Thomas University our financial assistance program is designed to provide financial assistance to students who need monetary support in order to continue working toward their educational goals. Although aid for graduate/doctoral students is limited, St. Thomas does work closely with all students in order to make the cost of education affordable.
