Graduate Studies Academic Program



Two Masters in Education (M. Ed.) degrees:


Educational Leadership
Curriculum and Instruction


Educational Leadership


Educational Leadership is designed to prepare and equip teachers and administrators with requisite knowledge and skills for service as effective educational administrators who practice their profession with a philosophical focus on God's Word. The M. Ed. in Educational Leadership leads to state certification.

Curriculum and Instruction


Curriculum and Instruction supports teachers' practice, providing them with a deeper understanding of the theories and pedagogies associated with curriculum design and instruction, to prepare and equip teachers with requisite knowledge and skills for service as effective classroom teachers who practice their profession with a philosophical focus on God's Word. The M. Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction results in a master's degree, but no certification.

Program Outline


Both masters' degrees are designed strictly as online programs that can be completed over a two-year period; however, students may take longer to complete the program and complete all graduation requirements within six years. Maximum course enrollment each semester is six hours. Courses are offered every fall, spring, and summer semester and new students may start at any term.
