The Master of Education in world language instruction program differs from other programs in that you will:
- Learn best practices for implementing technology in your teaching
- Learn to integrate culture and the ACTFL standards into any curriculum
- Learn by doing through experiential learning and immersion methodology at Concordia Language Villages
- Share ideas with cohort members
The effective use of technology is woven into the program to address how young people are processing and sharing information today. You will not only learn about current technology, you will use state-of-the-art technology to complete the online portion of the program during the academic year, keeping with the Concordia College philosophy of learning by doing.
The Master of Education in world language instruction program is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, a commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
