Master’s Degree in Education Online, Expanded at APUS

August 15, 2008

The American Public University System (APUS) has expanded its Master’s Degree in Education, online, to offer concentrations in both elementary education and social studies for secondary schools.

The programs are available at American Public University and American Military University. Classes start monthly, lasting either eight weeks or 16 weeks. Students must take 48 semester hours of selected curriculum, which includes nine-semester hours of student teaching and a capstone course for three semester hours. All courses are offered online, except for student teaching, which requires a school-based observation at an APUS approved location that the students can choose.

“It is truly exciting to be able to launch additional education degrees this fall,” said Dr. Cindy Emmans, Dean of the School of Education at APUS. “These degrees are particularly important additions, giving people the opportunity to earn an advanced degree as well as West Virginia teacher certification, which has reciprocity with most other states.”

APUS offers 73 undergraduate and graduate programs to more than 30,000 students worldwide. Within the education program, APUS also offers a Master’s of Education in administration and supervision (36 credit hours), Master’s of Education in Guidance Counseling (48 credit hours), and a Master’s of Education in teaching with a concentration in instructional leadership (36 credit hours).
