M.Ed. Capstones and Advanced Field Practicums

Each of Ashland's M.Ed. programs requires a capstone experience. These may take the form of an Inquiry Seminar, Thesis, Practicum, or Internship. Additionally, each program that focuses on Pre-K through 12 education must include an Advanced Field Practicum. In some programs this experience may be a part of the coursework. In others, it may be part of a capstone or a stand-alone experience. See below for additional information.

What Inquiry Seminars and Advanced Field Practicums are Available?

Please see the list below for the available sections of M.Ed. capstones and EDUC 710, Advanced Field Practicum, a course required in many of the M.Ed. programs. While EDUC 710 is often integrated with the EDUC 788 Inquiry Seminar, it is not a requirement to do so. As such, students enrolled in those EDUC 788 seminars without the EDUC 710 may need to take it at some point before completing their programs. Should a faculty member not be offering EDUC 710 with EDUC 788, a generic section of the course is offered each semester. Learn more about EDUC 710.
