Graduate School of Education

Already A Teacher - Advanced Degrees

Looking to extend your professional knowledge? We offer Master's degrees and Education Specialist (Ed.S.) degrees which are 30 credits beyond the master's level. Most of our degrees are offered completely online, which provides busy professionals with the flexibility to continue their education while working full-time. GREs are not required for entry into our advanced degrees, but you will need to provide evidence of your teaching license and must be a practicing teacher as many of our courses require you to gather data in your classroom.

We also offer graduate certificates which can be transferred into a Master's degree.
