Drew Hall 66, 651-523-2600

Designed to help educators meet the challenges of today’s schools and society, this program continues Hamline’s tradition of relevant curriculum, outstanding faculty, and personal attention. The curriculum is strongly inspired by the HSE conceptual framework: build learning communities, advocate for equity and social justice, construct knowledge, and practice reflection and inquiry. The curriculum builds on your knowledge and prior experience and links theory to practice. Instructional strategies promote reflection, engagement, and collaboration. At the heart of the curriculum is a set of guiding questions that stimulate thought-provoking discussion and professional growth. Elective credits are chosen based on personal and professional interests and needs. A Hamline certificate or license may be applied as electives.

The MAEd program is available in three formats:

Traditional MAEd

The traditional option meets on Hamline’s Saint Paul campus and is conducted in a traditional classroom setting.

Online MAEd

Required courses are facilitated by faculty online during the fall and spring terms. Active engagement in learning is expected beginning with the first week of class; weekly learning schedules are posted, and synchronous activities may be required.

Off-Campus MAEd

Required courses combine online and face-to-face learning, allowing you to complete your MAEd alongside a committed group of collaborative teachers and learners in a location convenient to you.

MAEd Degree Requirements (Total 34 credits and 3.0 GPA):


10 Elective Credits (selected by the student)


Half of the ten elective credits (5 credits) must be completed through Hamline University. Elective credits may be earned through 6000, 7000, or 8000-level Hamline University graduate courses or at other accredited institutions. Graduate work (either through Hamline University or another accredited institution) completed before admission into the MAEd program may be used towards elective credits, provided the transfer criteria are met. Transfer of prior credit occurs after successful completion of GED 8020. Most elective choices are made to meet students’ personal curriculum and instructional needs. A Hamline certificate or licensure program may be used to fulfill the elective requirement. Co-sponsored courses offered through HSE’s Continuing Studies department may be applied to degree program requirements up to 25% of the total credits.

MAEd Application Requirements:


  1. Why have you decided to pursue graduate study?
  2. How will the MAEd meet your personal and/or professional goals?
  3. What outcomes do you expect as a result of the MAEd program at Hamline University?
