If you are seeking a master's degree or hold a master's in a different subject, have at least one year teaching experience, and are interested in advancing your skills in ELA, you might consider our Master's program.
If you currently hold a master's degree, have at least one year of teaching experience, and are interested in advancing your skills in ELA, you might consider the Post-Master's Certificate. Upon successful completion, if additional requirements are met, you may have the opportunity to transfer the certificate credit hours toward the EdS in ELA degree.
Alternatively, if you currently hold a master's degree in a subject other than ELA and have at least one year of teaching experience, you could pursue the EdS in ELA.
Our advanced graduate programs are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and recognized by the National Policy Board for Educational Administration (NPBEA).
