East Carolina University’s College of Education is offering teachers a way to earn their master’s degree in just over a year.
Expected May education graduates or current teachers who are interested in getting a master’s degree in elementary education or middle grades education are encouraged to apply by Feb. 1. The online programs are being offered by the Department of Elementary and Middle Grades Education.
Spots are guaranteed for applicants who meet the Feb. 1 priority deadline and academic qualifications. Applications will be accepted until March 15 or until all spots are filled. Scholarships and financial aid are available. All classes are online.
The GRE test requirement will be waived for applicants with a 3.3 or higher GPA or for teachers with 10 or more years of experience.
Two cohorts seeking a master’s in elementary education will begin in Summer Session 1 and another group will begin this fall. Both will complete coursework in Summer Session 2 in 2019. The summer cohort will take two courses each semester. The fall cohort will take four courses in the fall and spring semesters, and two courses in each summer session in 2019.
Concentrations in the summer cohorts will include Teaching English as a Second Language, Teacher Leadership and Academically and Intellectually Gifted. Teacher Leadership will be the focus of the group starting this fall.
The department also is offering a one-year online master’s degree program in middle grades education beginning this fall. Concentrations will include English, social studies, math and science. Students will take three courses in the fall and spring semesters, and two courses in each summer session in 2019. Courses will end fall 2019.
