Educators in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia have several options available
to them in their quest to obtain their master's degree. Whether it is a personal
goal, a step toward furthering one's career or a change in careers, King College's
Graduate Professional Studies (GPS) Master of Education (MEd) degree program is designed
to reduce the challenges adult learners face in balancing personal and professional
King provides three start dates for the MEd program: spring, summer, or fall semester.
Spring 2012 MEd classes are available in both Bristol, Tenn., and Kingsport, Tenn.
The program is also available in a hybrid in-class and online format.
A MEd degree from King provides students with the skills and expertise to connect
research and knowledge gained in coursework to actual classroom settings. Students
will be prepared to synthesize research and theory, and practice and apply those skills
to their teaching methods. Students receive training to interpret professional literature
and to apply best practices in multiple and complex situations in the classroom.
The MEd program is also open to individuals who have completed a bachelor's degree
but who have not completed a teacher preparation program and wish to earn a teaching
license. The MEd program with initial licensure provides professionals with the specialized
knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to meet the educational needs of students
attending today's schools.
The program standards are aligned with the National Board for Professional Teaching
Standards, National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, and Tennessee
Teacher Licensure Standards: Professional Education.
King's MEd program is designed to be achievable, affordable, and convenient. Courses
are set at an accelerated pace, with students taking one course at a time in their
major and attending class only one evening per week. Students will be able to realize
their goal of a master's degree in as little as 16 months.
