MEd in Career and Technical Education with Emphasis in Vocational Technical Education

This online program is designed for certified secondary teachers, community college instructors, trade school facilitators, and corporate trainers. Courses in the degree program will support a graduate's ability to be an effective teacher by providing a foundation in curriculum design, teaching methods, student assessment, instructional program design and management, learner psychology, and educational technology.

The Vocational Technical Instruction emphasis is for those who teach:

  • Allied health science professions
  • Telecommunications and electronic technology
  • Construction trades
  • Culinary arts and food science
  • Automotive technology
  • Small and marine engine repair


Applicants are required to meet two sets of minimum qualifications for admission: the requirements of the MEd in Career and Technical Education program and the minimum requirements of the Office of Graduate Studies.  Because requirements vary, you must refer to a degree program's graduate admission page to learn about specific admission criteria, application deadlines, eligibility and application process.  Your application materials will be reviewed by both the Office of Graduate Studies and the degree program to which you’ve applied before official admission to the University of Missouri.
