Master of Education for non-licensed teachers & educators
Ready to begin thinking about earning your Master's degree? You might want to consider earning a Master of Education through SOU. Recently, a Professional track has been developed to meet the professional development needs of educators outside of the K-12 public school system. This track will be attractive to early childhood professionals, health educators, organizational facilitators, community college teachers, and others that work within educational settings.
The core classes in this track are offered in a hybrid model, online with a one Saturday per month meeting in Medford. The remainder of the credits can be taken online. For more information visit sou.edu/education/med
