M.Ed. in Urban Education

The M.Ed. in Urban Education is a 33-credit-hour, fully online degree program designed to prepare education professionals who are committed to delivering high-quality, culturally relevant/sustaining instruction and services that meet the needs of students in increasingly diverse, urban school systems and communities across the United States. Students who graduate with an M.Ed. in Urban Education from UNC Charlotte will not only gain a pedagogical (instructional) skill set that informs their understanding of culturally responsive/sustaining teaching practices, but they will also be trained to recognize and examine larger issues related to culture, race, and racism that influence the quality of non-academic services (counseling, mentoring, social/behavioral support, etc.) prospective graduates may provide to urban communities.
