Lincoln wants to add education masters degree
Friday, June 17, 2011
If state higher education officials agree, Lincoln University soon could offer a 36-hour master’s degree in education, for teaching middle school.
The program would include qualifications for teacher certification for those students who don’t have that license.
“Certification at the middle school level is an attractive path for the non-traditional students who are returning to Lincoln University after completing a college degree outside of the field of education,” Cynthia Chapel, LU’s education department chairwoman, wrote in a memo given to the curators.
