Program Mission

The master’s program in developmental education within the Department of Curriculum and Instruction prepares future educators, leaders, program developers, and administrators to enhance the learning and educational experiences of postsecondary students in a variety of contexts. The department is committed to offering a robust experience in which students learn to think critically about theory, research, and practice in multiple areas of college readiness and developmental education including developmental literacy, learning support, and developmental mathematics. As a multidisciplinary program, the faculty, staff, and students work collaboratively across various academic disciplines, diverse communities, and geographic boundaries.
