The Master of Arts in Learning and Instruction (MALI) is designed for graduate students from the United States and other countries with diverse academic interests and from diverse backgrounds who wish to study complex issues related to the teaching-learning process.

Distinct from other Master level programs offered by the Department of Education, this program is designed as a non-teacher certification or non-licensure program; in other words, completion of this program does not lead to a teaching license from a state board of education in the United States. The program prepares graduate students to develop an understanding of the multifaceted nature of education using theory and results from educational research to improve preschool to 12th grade (P-12) students’ learning in a variety of contexts.
