- Complete an interview with program area faculty (ELPS departmental staff will coordinate scheduling of the interviews after the submission after the application materials have been submitted).
Applicants for the program leading to the degree of Master of Education (M.Ed.) must present the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education as conferred by the University of Oklahoma or the equivalent, including twelve hours of acceptable undergraduate work in education. The student may elect a thesis or a non-thesis program. A student will normally complete work within five calendar years after the student's first graduate enrollment at the University of Oklahoma.
B.S. in Education or equivalent is required for admission. Students must have 12 hours of prerequisite courses in Education. Students without the necessary prerequisites are expected to fulfill those requirements. Additional courses may be required depending upon the area of certification and the area of study.
For students in the non-thesis M.Ed. program, the Comprehensive Portfolio serves as the comprehensive examination for the master’s degree. Students choosing the M.Ed. thesis program are required to complete a master’s thesis in lieu of the Comprehensive examination
