Busy educators who want to put aside time to deepen their expertise might not be able to add a new commute to their lives in order to go to night classes. Online education degrees provide educators with the flexibility to thrive in their current jobs and complete a new, career-advancing degree.
William Carey University School of Education offers four Master of Education degrees in a fully online format: elementary education (K-6), secondary education (7-12), mild and moderate disabilities (K-12), and emotional and behavioral disorders. 
“The classes are delivered in a fully online format that is perfect for the working student who wants to take their education to the next level,” said Dr. Ben Burnett, dean of the WCU School of Education. 
Additionally, WCU offers online programs for Specialist in Education degrees in instructional leadership and in emotional and behavioral disorders, and a Doctor of Education in educational leadership.
“Being ranked #14 in the country recognizes that Carey maintains quality in its academic programs, regardless of the delivery format,” said WCU President Tommy King. “Providing programs that allow busy adults to obtain credentials that make them employable in today’s society is a goal of our online programs.”
For educators interested in working in the critical educational work that happens outside of the classroom, completing an online MEd, will give them access to administrative positions in the field of education and increase their earning potential.
