The Master of Education is a professional development degree for teachers and professionals with leadership or training roles in the health sciences, social services, community education, or business. Professional development is achieved through critical reflection, theoretical investigation, and application of theory and research to practice in communities.

The curriculum is based on the roles that educational scholars play as teachers, leaders, and change agents in formal, non-formal, and community-based settings. Core courses are delivered primarily online with one mandatory face–to–face weekend session during the first month of each semester.
