The Master of Science (M.S.) in Business Education degree program is designed for those engaged in teaching business concepts and studies in public, private and corporate educational institutions. The 30-credit program also assists individuals desiring initial or additional secondary teaching certification in business, computer, and information technology. If you wish to pursue secondary teaching certification concurrently with this degree program, you should notify the Graduate Admissions Office of your intention to do so upon application.
Courses normally are scheduled during four eight-week evening terms from September to May. During the summer months, classes also are scheduled during the day for more intensive study. These summer courses may have learning sessions or project advisement conferences arranged by the instructor. Because of the competency-based format, credit allocations for some courses are based on content rather than on the number of class meeting hours.
Through this program, you'll engage in effective, advanced studies in areas relating to the learning environment, the improvement of instruction, and professional development. In consultation with a faculty advisor, you'll design a personalized program of study by choosing elective courses that best meet your own objectives. You may specialize by selecting courses that parallel a business education certification area, or choose electives from a wide array of education and business administration courses. This flexibility is a key feature of the program.
Most of our graduate programs can be completed in 27 months or less, through in-class, online or hybrid study. Take classes one night a week through your course of study. Admission is rolling and classes start fresh every eight weeks. You can also choose to pursue your degree full- or part-time.
