Making the best job on Earth even better

Teaching is one of the most important and most fulfilling careers. But that doesn't mean it's easy! As teaching changes and more technology is used successfully in the classroom, keeping current can be a challenge.

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree program at The College of St. Scholastica is a fully online degree program for practicing teachers and other education professionals. The program engages learners to reflect upon their teaching practices to improve student learning and address critical issues in today's schools.

We prepare "21st-century teachers" who are both familiar and comfortable with the technology of the modern classroom. Learners will also acquire new strategies for using data and research to impact their classrooms.

National recognition. Individual attention.

Five elective options

St. Scholastica's Master of Education (M.Ed.) program offers students five concentration options to fulfill their elective requirements:     

Cohort model

Online learning isn't independent learning at St. Scholastica. We've applied a cohort model to our M.Ed., which means you'll move through the program with the same group of colleagues. We've also implemented a host of technologies to help bridge the gap between the computer and the classroom.

Program advisor

An online adviser is assigned to you at the beginning of the program and stays with you until you graduate. Your online adviser is available to answer questions and offer support.

Other student resources

  • Zoom is a fully functional virtual classroom that allows you to participate in live discussions with other students, attend online lectures, and much more.
  • A 24-hour help desk means that you'll never struggle alone with an uncooperative computer.
  • Instant messaging and discussion boards enable virtual class discussions.
  • Other support services, including Hoonuit and SMARTHINKING, help you master important software and provide online tutoring support to make sure you have help when you need it.

Federal loan forgiveness programs for teachers

The U.S. Department of Education offers loan forgiveness programs for teachers. The program requires teachers to work in school districts that serve low-income students for five consecutive academic years and offers up to $17,500 in loan forgiveness for Federal Stafford loans.
