Accelerated Path to a 2nd MAEd Degree

Graduates who previously earned an MAEd in Curriculum & Instruction or Learning, Design, and Technology at Concordia University Irvine can now earn a second master's degree to advance their careers in positions that require the alternate degree.

Building on the 30 units that you already completed to earn your MAEd, you will only need to complete 15 additional elective units to earn your second MAEd. All coursework can be completed fully online in as little as 10 months. Start dates for the accelerated second MAEd program operate under the same quarterly time-frames. As an added benefit, alumni applying for this program will have the application fee waived.
