One advanced degree that some students pursue after earning their bachelor’s is a master’s degree. This program expands on previous knowledge and can open the door to additional career paths.

What is an online Master in Education? Earning a degree online has become a popular choice, especially for those with busy lives. A Master in Education is designed to train teachers for a specialized area. These areas may include science, early childhood, special education, gifted education, developmental psychology, curriculum and mathematics. Each program will vary depending on the specialization, but topics may include instructional and assessment strategies, how to improve school performance or how to teach adults.

Online degrees are beneficial in that students can get through the curriculum on their own schedule. Earning a graduate degree in education also allows for non-traditional career opportunities in the areas of teaching and training, and it may lead to higher salaries.

Cost consideration comes into play when deciding on which school to attend. Location is not a factor with online programs, but the program duration and reputation of the school need to be factored in. It is recommended that interested students get in touch with specific schools to find out tuition and other fees.

There are a number of career opportunities for those with a master’s degree in education. While some may choose traditional teaching positions in the private or public sector, others may choose another path. Other options include supervision and administration, training and adult education, school counseling and curriculum development. Some job titles include career counseling, corporate training consultant, education policy developer, educational coordinator, school technology consultant, special education director, online instruction developer and institutional researcher.

If earning an advanced education degree is of interest, explore schools using our database. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
