Online Education Programs

The College of Education & Human Development offers five online education degree programs and two non-degree endorsements. Three of these programs allow certified teachers to earn Master of Education (M.Ed.) degrees without coming to campus. The Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) enables students to earn their initial certification in the area of English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). The Master of Science (M.S.) degree prepares graduates to conduct research in the schools and in other settings.

Determine which online program is right for you with our Online Education Readiness Assessment page — a Web-based tool.
