The University of New England goes global with the announcement of the first classes in the university's online Master of Science in Education program. This fall marks the first time that students in the program can earn their degree completely online with no trips to campus.
"This is a very exciting time for the Education Department," said Department Chair Dr. Douglas Lynch. "We are beginning to build a new online community of educators who work and live across the country but who come together for a common purpose through the University of New England. In the process the university can influence minds and help these professional educators sharpen their skills so that they can be more effective in the classroom."
The program is designed so that teaching professionals can have a high quality graduate education experience in the convenience of their home or school. The program offers experienced teachers the opportunity to study, reflect, and practice skills based on the most recent educational research and instructional techniques that will enhance confidence and skill in the classroom.
The University of New England realizes the importance technology plays in the delivery of educational opportunities. Online course delivery takes away geographical boundaries allowing the faculty to deliver high quality instruction to professional educators worldwide.
The Master's of Science in Education (MSEd) programs are 30 credits, fifteen of which are a core curriculum taken by all MSEd candidates and fifteen that are in an area of concentration. Prospective students in the MSEd program will choose from four concentrations: Educational Leadership, Inclusion Education, Literacy (K-12) and Curriculum & Instruction Strategies. The university also offers a 30-hour certificate in Advanced Educational Leadership to professional educators who are pursuing upper-level school administrator positions.
The curriculum for each concentration includes:
