Course Description

This degree is completely online, allowing you to attend class and study when you have time. There are no required sessions on campus (except for the counseling program) so the degree can be completed from anywhere in the state, the country or overseas.

The curriculum is exactly the same as our on-campus program and is accredited by The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).

This degree program allows you to choose from six different specialty areas:
  • Instructional Technology Program
  • Culturally Linguistically Diverse Education (CLDE) Program
  • Gifted & Talented Endorsement
