The Dwight Schar College of Education’s M.Ed. programs are among the largest in the state. With their intentional integration of theory and practice, our programs of study offer the academics and field-based elements that professionals need.
The College of Education has been accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) for more than 30 years. Our programs have been approved by their recognized specialized professional associations. Our faculty are proven practitioners who understand how to provide a balance of theory and practice in the classroom.
The College of Education’s graduate programs are offered at the Ashland campus, as well as four regional centers located in Columbus, Cleveland (Warrensville Heights), Elyria, and Massillon, OH. Courses are provided at the centers, online, and in hybrid (combined face-to-face and online) formats.
Ashland’s “Accent on the Individual” is a motto that represents how we do business. Knowledgeable M.Ed. program directors are available at each center to advise graduate students from the initial application to graduation. Within the classroom, our faculty believe that small class numbers, individualized attention, and quality instruction lead to purposeful learning experiences.
