The future of education depends on innovative and creative educators like you, professionals who can transform educational programs and practices to meet the challenges and respond to the opportunities of this rapidly changing world. Post University’s online master’s in education degree program helps prepare you to learn, educate, and lead in your field. Coursework helps you build the critical thinking, analytic and forecasting skills you need to be successful in a variety of educational settings, from K-12 through higher ed, to corporate training, military training, post-secondary, and for other online learning environments. After earning their graduate degrees in education, many of our alumni go on to pursue their doctoral education degree to further enhance their knowledge and advance in their careers.
Our program is grounded in the identification, evaluation, and application of research-based education practices. In your core classes, you will develop a vision for the future of education through an analysis of the issues and changes in both education and technology; apply principles of cognitive science; use metrics to measure student, programmatic and institutional achievement; and identify and use relevant technology in the service of better learning. Additionally, each student identifies an area of concentration and course work from the following: Curriculum and Instruction; Educational Technology; Learning Design and Technology; Online Teaching; or Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
Technology is a critical component of this program, and you will create your Personal Learning Environment to compile and share what you learn in a digital portfolio. Studies for your master’s degree in education conclude with a three-credit capstone in which you will complete an action-research project aimed at solving a real-world problem of practice.
At Post University, we understand you have responsibilities you can’t put on hold while you attend school—and you don’t have to with our completely online education degrees. Stay in your current position while you learn on your schedule.
Every step of the way, you will be guided by our faculty of industry experts, professionals who have years of experience and expertise in the field. They will share their valuable insights and advice to help better prepare you to move ahead in your career. Additionally, a personal academic advisor will assist you with any questions, challenges and choose a concentration that best aligns with your goals.
