Move ahead… faster
You will begin the program in the summer and can complete it the following summer. In just over 12 months, you can earn your master's degree and the accompanying pay-grade increase (about $5,000 per year in 2009 when moving from a T-4 to a T-5 certification).
A convenient schedule
The M.Ed. is designed with your schedule in mind. The program begins in the summer
when you have more time to dedicate to your studies. When you return to the classroom
in the fall, you will be accustomed to the workload of graduate study, making the
transition smoother. Fall, interim and spring term courses are offered during the
evening, giving you plenty of time to get from work to your graduate studies.
