Master of Science in Elementary Education

Pfeiffer's Master of Science degree in Elementary Education (MSEE) is a 36 semester-hour program for teachers with an elementary license looking to enrich their content knowledge and refine their ability to design and deliver effective instruction. But our program goes beyond instructional expertise by offering a conceptual framework of servant leadership.

  • This program uses a cohort model. You'll work through the program with the same group, allowing for community building and networking.
  • You'll demonstrate your abilities in analyzing, planning, and critical thinking in each course as well as in a culminating experience.
  • You'll learn in small classes with students from diverse backgrounds.
  • In addition to our affordable tuition, financial aid is available for those who qualify. Candidates currently working in school settings are eligible for a 40% tuition-reduction scholarship.
  • Courses include service components in which you and community partners develop learning experiences and deliver needed services to people and organizations.
  • This program is accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and approved by the NC Department of Public Instruction.
  • Your practical assignments are linked to your current teaching position, so you're able to apply your learning immediately and get credit for it.
  • The program faculty are highly qualified, actively engaged in the field and regularly work in school and with students.
  • Courses are offered through teleconferencing, online offerings and hybrid options on our Charlotte Campus and through our partnerships with Randolph and Stanly Community Colleges.
