MS in Education (for Existing Teachers Grades K-12)
Today's K-12 classrooms come in all shapes and sizes, accommodating students in public and private schools, vocational programs, and even home schooling environments. If you are interested in honing your skills and knowledge to better position yourself for career advancement, Kaplan University offers a convenient, flexible solution for earning your master's degree online.* The program offers six emphasis areas designed to help you achieve academic competencies in a specific area of teaching: teaching literacy and language, teaching mathematics—middle and secondary, teaching science—middle and secondary, teaching students with special needs, teaching with technology, and educational leadership.
Curriculum is updated regularly, and faculty members all have PhDs and bring years of educational and practical experience to the classroom ensuring your knowledge is both current and engaging. And, in recognition of teachers’ commitment and contributions, Kaplan University offers scholarships to eligible professionals employed at governmental and nonprofit institutions.† Additionally, teachers who received National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT) status through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) may receive credit for three courses within the Master of Science of Education. This could save you money on your graduate investment and shorten the time spent pursuing your degree by up to 5 months so you could graduate in less than one year.‡
