Master of Education - 33 Credits

This program was available online.

The online Master of Education program at Post University provides educators with a curriculum tailored to the critical thinking, analytic, and forecasting skills needed to be change-agents and leaders in their education organizations. The program is grounded in the identification, evaluation and implementation of research-based education practices while keeping sight on the future of education through the use of trending and forecasting strategies. Technology is integrated throughout the program, enabling educators to create their own Personal Learning Environments (PLE’s) to individualize education applications through a creative web presence.

During the program’s four core courses, students 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. Following the core, students will select a four-course concentration sequence in Higher Education Administration, Instructional Design and Technology, Online Teaching, Teaching and Learning, and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). All students will complete the program with a study of research methods, and the design and implementation of an application-based capstone project.

The MEd program prepares students to move to leadership positions within their own education context, which may be in the K-12, corporate, training, military, online, post-secondary, or other education environments. Master of Education career opportunities include being a teacher-leader, K-12 department chair, administrative leader, curriculum developer, corporate trainer, training leader, instructional designer, military trainer, or higher education professional, depending on a student’s background and chosen area of concentration.
