Centenary University is pleased to offer an innovative online program that allows you to earn a highly-respected master’s degree in education on a schedule that fits your busy lifestyle.

Our online Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Educational Practice program is designed to prepare K-12 schoolteachers to address the challenges of today’s classroom. You will learn practical approaches to situations that teachers face each day including activities, strategies and techniques you can implement immediately in your own classroom.

The program consists of twelve courses, totaling 36 credits. These courses are offered entirely online. You will take four accelerated courses per year, each one lasting eight weeks. You also have the opportunity to earn your New Jersey Teacher Leader Endorsement within the program.

Making Connections

Although all classes are online, you will join in a cohort of students and progress through the program together. As a member of a cohort, you will:

  • Work with other teachers and our highly-qualified faculty in a collaborative way.
  • Participate in project-based activities, action research and reflective practices.
  • Learn and share proven strategies that can help your students achieve success.

In short, you will be able to comfortably achieve your professional academic goals in a flexible, convenient and practical online environment.

Teacher Leader Endorsement

The four courses in the M.Ed. program aligned with the Teacher Leader Model Standards are specifically designed to meet the distinctive needs of the contemporary K-12 teachers and prepare them to be teacher leaders as they address the challenges of the 21st century classroom. The New Jersey Teacher Leader Endorsement gives teachers opportunities within the school such as:

  1. Serve as instructional coaches, new-hire mentors, or team leaders.
  2. Lead professional development
  3. Be involved in curriculum design and development
  4. Plan community or family events.
