Master of Arts in Education, option in Educational Foundations

The M.A. Program in Education – Option in Educational Foundations offers an interdisciplinary program that draws on conceptual and methodological frameworks from the humanities, social sciences, and behavior sciences to prepare professionals in educational settings to critically examine, understand, and respond to issues in urban schooling.  The fundamental goal of the program is to engage educators in the development of interpretive, normative, and critical perspectives on urban schooling and issues of equity and educational opportunity confronted by students from diverse social, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds.

The program requires that candidates successfully complete the following coursework:

16 UNITS OF REQUIRED CORE COURSES

EDFN 500  Evaluation of Educational Research
EDFN 505  Qualitative Research in Education
EDFN 506  Comparative Education
EDFN 507  History of Education

8 UNITS IN AN AREA OF CONCENTRATION
Psychological Foundations of Education
EDFN 510  Advanced Study: Learning Theory
EDFN 530  Advanced Study in Human Development
                                  or
Social Foundations of Education
EDFN 506  Comparative Education
EDFN 507  History of Education

21 UNITS OF ELECTIVES IN EDUCATION OR A RELATED AREA OF STUDY

Students are allowed maximum flexibility in satisfying this requirement. They may complete any combination of 21 units of 400 or 500 level coursework in education and/or a related area of study outside of education.  This affords students the opportunity to combine the M.A. Program in Educational Foundations with any other credential, certificate, or M.A. program at the Charter College of Education or the larger CSULA campus.

COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION

Upon completion of required coursework, students must pass the program’s Comprehensive Examination.

Because it is designed to afford working adults the opportunity to complete graduate-level study with the greatest degree of flexibility, the following are unique features of the M.A. Program in Educational Foundations:

  • It accepts applications and admits students throughout the academic year*.
  • It affords students the opportunity to complete coursework on a full-time or part-time basis. 
  • It allows students to complete required courses in the order that best meets their needs and schedules as working adults.

Given the degree of flexibility the Program seeks to maintain, it does not require students to follow a specific roadmap to graduation.  Each student is allowed to work with an advisor to develop an individual Program Plan that satisfies all program requirements and best meets the student’s academic objectives, and then allowed to work toward completion of said program while exercising the flexibility indicated above. 

* Students must be admitted to CSULA before they can begin an M.A. program, and CSULA enforces particular deadlines for admission to graduate study; but once admitted to the CSULA for graduate study, students can apply for admission to the M.A. Program in Education – Option in Educational Foundations during any academic quarter.  Students who are not already admitted to the CSULA for graduate study must apply via Cal State Apply (https://www2.calstate.edu/apply) and adhere to posted deadlines.
