New online degree in education announced
Those interested in pursuing an online degree in education have one more option to select from with Marzano Research Laboratory’s recent introduction of a new program.
The curriculum for the Master of Science in Education with a major in the Art and Science of Teaching, which was developed jointly with Wilkes University, has been designed by education expert Robert J. Marzano with the goal of providing skills and tools teachers can use to significantly increase student achievement.
“This course of study will help teachers adopt Marzano’s research, which has proven results in boosting student achievement,” says Michael Speziale, dean of the College of Graduate and Professional Studies and the School of Education at Wilkes University.
“The guiding principle of the program is whether students are learning what is being taught, not whether teachers are implementing the instructional strategies,” he adds.
The program is one of many online degrees in education available at institutions across the country.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, primary and secondary school teachers will experience a positive job growth in their field, averaging 5 percent over the next seven years. The source also says the top 10 percent of such educators already earn between $67,490 and $76,100 a year.
