Thank you for your interest in Nebraska Wesleyan. Our MEd program is currently not accepting new applications. Courses remain available to current and non-degree seeking students. Please call or text Nikki at (402) 430-7817 if you have questions.

You have high expectations for your students—and for yourself. Nebraska Wesleyan University’s Master of Education in curriculum and instruction will take your teaching to the next level.

The Nebraska Wesleyan Difference

Nebraska Wesleyan has been educating great educators for more than a century. Our master’s program offers the high quality and personal attention you expect from Nebraska Wesleyan.

We help you transform your classroom into a space where academic achievement and personal wellbeing converge. Harness the latest research in positive education to reinvigorate your career and foster your students’ success.

Partner with us to develop your own research. Test your theories in the classroom. We connect you with a research coach to analyze your approach and fine tune your techniques in the classroom. All NWU research coaches are experienced experts with doctoral degrees. They help you design and execute research specific to the challenges you face in your classroom.  

Committed Faculty

Nebraska Wesleyan’s MEd professors are highly qualified and deeply committed to your success. Most are full-time professors with their doctorates. That’s not the case at other programs in our region.

Our professors work hand-in-hand with you on strategies that support student wellbeing, increase classroom engagement and enrich learning through diversity.

The Right Fit for You

We designed our program with teachers in mind. The result is an MEd that fits your work and home life. Take classes in Lincoln or Omaha.

Here are five reasons why Nebraska Wesleyan’s MEd fits you.

  1. We protect your grading and planning time.
    No classes before 6 p.m. during your school year.
  2. We emphasize summer courses.
    That’s when your free time is greatest.
  3. We avoid school activity conflicts.
    Most MEd classes during the school year meet on Wednesday evenings—when schools don’t typically schedule events.
  4. We prioritize face-to-face teaching.
    While other programs rely on online courses, we emphasize your classroom experience.
  5. We won’t touch your weekends.
    We protect that time for your family.

Apply today to power up your classroom and reenergize your teaching career. NWU offers a limited number of MEd scholarships valued at $40 per credit hour. 

The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools has accredited Nebraska Wesleyan University and its Master of Education program.
