Program Learning Outcomes

Learn what skills and training students will have acquired upon completion of this degree.


IME is a family, a group of intelligent loving human beings that feel social justice is at the core of being an educator. It is a place that is called our second home, a place that we come to when the outside world is frustrating, and we need a place of support and reflection. It is this place that thoughts are thrown around, honored, respected, and gracefully challenged.
