The Master of Science degree (MS) is intended to provide the student with a strong graduate level course of study related to the field of education. While the MS program will not lead to a teaching license, the program is not limited to licensed teachers. If you are a graduate student wishing to pursue an initial teaching license, please refer to our MAT program.
For more information about the MS program, contact an advisor.
The MS degree is an online program.
