Welcome to the Department of Curriculum and Instruction
Welcome to the Department of Curriculum and Instruction (DCI) in Florida Atlantic’s College of Education (COE). The DCI is home to undergraduate and graduate degree programs. We prepare high-quality teachers and educational professionals (e.g., instructional designers). Our undergraduate, master’s, specialists, and doctoral programs offer students several options leading to traditional careers in PK-12 schools or opportunities with education-related and non-profit organizations. Students interested in a traditional university experience will find a rich mix of campus life activities. Three master’s programs are offered entirely online as well as several graduate certificates that can be completed as part of a master’s degree for working professionals and advanced students.
The Department offers many opportunities for students to explore an array of topics through a host of disciplines. For example, students interested in promoting literacy may be eligible for tuition support through the James Patterson Teacher Education Scholarship . There is also the STEM Education Laboratory for students interested in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), where students can learn about ways to improve STEM education.
Department faculty are deeply committed to a community of excellence, equity, and diversity and welcome all students. Learn more about our faculty .
