Popular as a master’s program or an undergrad major that preps you for graduate work, Curriculum and Instruction (C&I) is a study in education that focuses on the best ways to teach. The field combines research in student learning and achievement with the practical development of curriculum. To stay current with changes in society, subjects, and government standards, you’ll explore new teaching trends and instructional processes, as well as tried-and-true cornerstones of education.
C&I degree programs are ideal for teachers at any level and/or those who aspire to become curriculum coordinators. Courses typically include lessons on curriculum planning and design, ways to assess a curriculum, and the execution/use of a curriculum. A passion for education is an absolute must, and it would also be helpful to be familiar with current instructional trends. Other important skills include organization, creativity, time management, and flexibility. Graduates are often hired by school districts as Instructional/Curriculum Coordinators, helping teachers not only implement top-notch curriculum but also train teachers in new processes and technologies, such as software or equipment.
