Business and Marketing Education Degree Program (MS)
Master of Science
The Master of Science (M.S.) Degree in Business And Marketing Education is offered with or without Wisconsin teaching licensure. There are three emphases available:
- General—for those individuals who have already earned licensure. The program builds on undergraduate course work and teaching experience.
- Secondary—for those individuals who possess an undergraduate degree and are seeking licensure to teach at grade levels K-12 in either business education or marketing education.
- Post-secondary—for those individuals who plan to teach or are teaching at the post-secondary level and pursuing their Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) certificate.
All programs include course work that reflects what is needed by teachers who want to possess the latest in teaching methodology and technical knowledge.
The curriculum is designed to familiarize students with both the content of business course work and methods for effectively teaching such content in K-12 settings. Students will develop skills relevant to evaluating differences in students’ learning styles and levels, and adapting teaching methodologies to instruct more effectively given these differences.
