RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) -- At a time when many colleges are cutting enrollment, the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Riverside is looking to expand.

With that in mind, the school is hosting an open house from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 31 in room 269 in the Highlander Union Building (HUB) to answer questions about its teacher credential, Master’s and Ph.D. programs.

Students, faculty and staff from the Graduate School of Education will be on hand to meet prospective students. The event is free, although parking is $6. Food will be provided.

For more information visit education.ucr.edu, call 951-827-5225 or e-mail edgrad@ucr.edu.

Currently, about 100 students are enrolled each year in the UC Riverside teacher education program. Anne Jones, director of the program, would like to increase that to up to 150 students annually.

In teacher education, the school offers the multiple subject credential, the single subject credential and the special education credential.

Students can also combine a multiple subject credential or single subject credential with a Master’s program to earn a teaching credential and Master of Education during the same program year. Students take two graduate level courses during the first summer, continue with professional and graduate level courses during the fall, winter and spring quarters, and take one graduate level course in the second summer.

The school also offers doctoral programs in several program areas including education, society and culture; educational psychology; higher education administration and policy; school psychology; and special education.

Master’s of Art degrees are offered in education, society and culture; educational psychology; and special education. Master’s of Education degrees are offered with an emphasis in autism; diversity and equity; higher education administration and policy; reading; and special education with the education specialist credential.

The University of California, Riverside (www.ucr.edu) is a doctoral research university, a living laboratory for groundbreaking exploration of issues critical to Inland Southern California, the state and communities around the world. Reflecting California's diverse culture, UCR's enrollment has exceeded 21,000 students.
