Learn to lead curricular and instructional change initiatives that improve teaching and learning in your school or district.

Walden’s Education Specialist (EdS) in Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Development is a curriculum and instruction program designed to help K–12 educators and administrators develop the expertise to improve student outcomes and teacher effectiveness. A unique blend of two critical areas of expertise, this program can help prepare you to become a highly effective curriculum specialist and professional developer of teachers.

The EdS in Curriculum, Instruction, and Professional Development is based on the standards of the National Staff Development Council. And with no residency requirement, this curriculum development program allows you to more easily balance your education with your personal and professional commitments.

An Education Specialist degree, sometimes referred to as a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS), is ideal for educators who want to remain working in the field but who would like to increase their influence and impact on their learning communities.
