Online Education Programs

The College of Education & Human Development offers seven online education degree programs, two graduate certificates, and two non-degree endorsements. Four 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.

  • no immunization requirements
  • reduced student fees – students pay a technology fee and a Board of Regents institution fee
  • courses offered spring, summer, and fall semesters
  • no campus visits
