Interdisciplinary Educational Studies (MSE)

As a student in the Interdisciplinary Educational Studies master's program at the University of Dayton, you'll have the flexibility to design a program to meet your diverse professional goals. Candidates must select concentration coursework from both the School of Education and Health Sciences and at least one department outside SEHS. Students working toward State of Ohio-issued licenses in visual arts or music education programs apply for this degree.

The program leads to a State of Ohio-issued teaching license for grades PK-12. The State of Ohio requires passing scores on the Ohio Assessment for Educators.
