Degree & Certificate Offerings in Education

Fully online, no campus visits required

The mission of the department of education is to develop – through research, service, and innovative teaching – reflective teachers and school leaders who are competent and caring lifelong learners. In addition, four guiding principles are used in development and delivery of all programs and courses: rigorous mind, compassionate heart, reflective stance, competent demonstration.

Growth in learning and professional development

As an educator, you understand that there is always an opportunity for growth in learning. The majority of states in the U.S. require educators to meet ongoing continuing education requirements for professional development, with some states requiring master’s level education for licensure or tenure. There is value in turning this requirement for graduate coursework completion into a full master’s degree.

Open the door to leadership opportunities

Advancing your studies in education can open the door to growth and leadership opportunities in the education field, allowing you to move into administration, director level or content area specialist. Outside of the school system, educators with master’s level training can pursue consultative, research or training roles, and more.
