Curriculum and Instruction Specialization

Master of Education program at George Fox University

Specialization courses are a blend of face-to-face classroom meetings, online classes, and face to face/online hybrid classes. Summer classes meet at our Newberg campus (affordable housing is available for long distance-students); spring and fall classes are taught mostly online with a few evening/weekend classes.
