The Master of Science degree in Education is a course of professional study which allows a concentration in education and a related field. This program is designed for students interested in the field of education but who are not interested in pursuing certification.
The Educational Leadership Department offers concentrations in biology, mathematics, computer science, and professional education. In all cases, students will be required to take five foundation courses, four courses in the concentration area, three education or concentration area electives, and appropriate field experiences.
The M.S. degree in these concentrations requires 36 credits of study.
To learn more about our graduate programs, prospective students are encouraged to attend a Graduate Open House.
All of the candidates’ undergraduate coursework must be in conformity with the guidelines established for Saint Joseph’s teacher certification programs. Therefore, it is highly recommended that individuals who are interested in the graduate education program contact the Director of the Educational Leadership Program before applying to the program to review their undergraduate transcript and to determine if all required coursework has been completed. Formal acceptance into the graduate education program cannot be granted until all prerequisite coursework is successfully completed.
