MASTER OF EDUCATION IN URBAN EDUCATION • 36-39 CREDITS • URBNEDU M ED
The Master of Education in Urban Education is an alternate route, certification program awards successful completers with a Master of Education and teacher certification in Math, English or Integrated Science. This alternate route/degree program allows individuals to teach in Michigan schools while fulfilling credential requirements. Davenport’s innovative approach to teacher training immerses a cohort of prospective teachers in a school for an academic year. Teachers in training are paired with a master teacher from the school. The coursework is delivered during the school day or online by faculty whose offices are in the school building. Faculty members provide immediate feedback through their assessments on the skills that matter most in effective teaching. Davenport’s program provides more time in the actual school setting so that prospective teachers develop the relationships and skills that are conducive for effective teaching.
