Learning Format For Education Administration 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. Your participation, using Blackboard and other resources like YouTube, related to recorded lectures can be done at your convenience, rather than during a specific time. To fulfill your graduation requirements for this program, you have the option of writing a thesis or completing a capstone project. For distance education students living outside of Portales, we use media equipped classrooms to let you defend your thesis from home and have an online option to complete your comprehensive exams.

Advising for Education Administration Students

If you are taking the time to complete an advanced study program, we know you want not only the benefits from our classes, but also our faculty's professional experience. To support you, we offer advising meetings via email and phone. We want you to feel connected and prepared to create and defend your thesis or complete your comprehensive exams.

Education Administration Resources and Academic Support
