Master of Education in Middle Grades Education (math/science)
The M.Ed. in Middle Grades Math and Science is an online degree offered cooperatively with the University of North Georgia. Top graduate faculty from both fully-accredited universities teach the courses. This advanced degree offers in-service middle grades teachers the opportunity to pursue advanced training in their teaching fields. Current certification in Middle Grades Math and/or Science is required for admission to the degree program, in order for the candidate to be considered for a teaching certificate upgrade. This 12-course, 36-semester hour program can be completed in four consecutive semesters - about 16 months - with full-time enrollment. Courses are offered on a continuous basis, allowing for part-time enrollment. All coursework is fully online. No campus visits are required to complete the program.
