Master of Education Programs
The Dwight Schar College of Education's four Master of Education (M.Ed.) programs are among the largest in the state. Our faculty guides practicing educators to explore the current state of the art in education and encourages them to apply new insights to real world settings. We also equip graduate students with the tools to carry out inquiries into the problems that will face educators in the future. These programs are conveniently available at the Ashland campus and regional program centers located in Cleveland, Columbus, Elyria and Stark County/Massillon. Please refer to each M.Ed. program description to learn where a given program is offered.
