Graduate Education Programs

At the graduate level the primary objective of the Department of Education is to enable you to further your study in your chosen field of specialization.

Master's programs lead to certification in counseling, educational diagnostician, reading specialist, principal and superintendent. You may also choose a general master's degree with options available for areas of specialization and certification. A master's degree requires completion of a minimum of 36 semester credit hours (SCH) of prescribed course work. The master's degree and certification programs require a grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale with no grade lower than a "C." For information pertaining to a specific certification, see a departmental advisor.  The Master's Comprehensive Examination must be taken in the last semester of required coursework.

Applicants who already hold a Masters degree may pursue a certification-only degree plan.  Graduate Certification Programs include Educational Diagnostician, Reading Specialist, School Counselor/L.P.C., Education Leadership/Principal, and Educational Leadership/Superintendent.

Tuition and Fees - see Undergraduate Resident:  Note - Tuition for Graduate Courses will be an additional $12.00 per semester credit hour.
