Learning Format For Elementary Curriculum and Instruction Graduate Degree Coursework
Our graduate degree in education administration is designed to be completed 100% online. You’ll complete readings, assignments, discussions on Blackboard, individual projects and presentations, quizzes and tests throughout the semester. Recorded lectures via Mediasite will connect you with professors and other students on your own time. In all classes except BLED 578, your participation, using Blackboard and other resources like YouTube and Collaborate, related to recorded lectures can be done at your convenience, rather than during a specific time. BLED 578 is a synchronous class and needs to be completed at the offered time. If this requirement is standing in the way of starting this program, please apply anyway and reach out to our department. We are happy to work with you if you have extenuating circumstances. To fulfill your graduation requirements for this program, you have the option of writing a thesis or passing comprehensive exams. You must be physically present to defend your thesis or take your comprehensive exams. We look forward to the opportunity to meet you in person!
