Ed.S. Program of Study
Download the pdf here.
Effective for applicants to Fall of 2020 and forward, the GRE is no longer a requirement for admission to our MAE, M.Ed. and Ed.S. programs.
An Ed.S. degree is a professional degree intended to enhance Masters level training by merging practical and theoretical knowledge with authentic experiences. The goal of an Ed.S. degree is to support enhanced professional practice. Our Ed.S. program is for individuals with K-12/teacher education contexts only.
Our Ed.S. program is designed to prepare practicing teachers, technology specialists and others within K-12 to use technology as a tool to modify, extend, or enhance their curriculum, to take leadership roles related to technology implementation and to critically analyze and evaluate technology implementation efforts in local contexts. Assuming Master’s degree credits from an education-related degree are approved for transfer (See FAQ section about transfer credits), students may complete the Ed.S. program in about 2 years.
Some students will need to take more electives based on credits approved for transfer. Students may not take more than 2 courses per session, however, students may move more slowly through the program and/or create their own program schedule using information about course availability. Please note the Supervised Research/Independent Study experience is taken last and is only offered during the Summer sessions. Note this experience is full summer semester experience.
