As experts in distance learning, Peru State College Online is proud to make it easier for teachers to advance their own education, safely and flexibly online. We have a shared purpose as educators, and it is our pleasure to help you take your career to the greatest heights. Our Master of Science in Education (MSED) can do just that.
Our online graduate degree is perfect for teachers wanting to gain new skills for the classroom, advance to leadership roles, or simply make a better salary. Offering unique options with our MSED, we’re all about delivering quality education that works best for you and your goals. And with programmatic accreditation by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), our MSED is validated as an educator’s top choice.
TWO DISTINCT FORMATS
This accelerated 36-credit-hour online master’s in education can be completed in as few as 19 months. As part of a cohort of other distance learners, your plan will consist of carefully sequenced eight-week and four-week online courses, designed with a full-time educator’s schedule in mind. Registration is completed by our Graduate Programs Office.
At a more flexible pace that you control, you can complete the required 36 credit hours in a traditional manner, during any session offered. You simply take the core Curriculum and Instruction courses, as well as program electives you choose. Registration is completed by the student.
TWO SPECIALIZATION OPTIONS
Certificate of Advanced Studies
A choice of four 9-hour courses enables you to further specialize, and can be used toward the completion of your MSED. These classes may also be used to fulfill the 500-level elective courses required for your graduate program. (The courses are also available to non-degree seeking students.) Topics include:
- Classroom Behavior and Management
- Instructional Mastery
- Inclusionary Practices and Policies
- Instructional Technology
Please note: Certificates of Advanced Studies are available to graduate-level students only. Certificates of Advanced Studies are not endorsements and do not allow an individual to teach in that specialty. Also, completing these courses only will not grant you a Master of Science degree.
Supplemental Endorsement in English as a Second Language (ESL)
The Nebraska-approved ESL Supplemental Endorsement can be earned online in as few as 12 months, preparing you to be certified in the State of Nebraska to teach ESL in the grade levels for which you are endorsed. This ESL Endorsement is limited to those holding a subject or field endorsement
