Colorado State University-Pueblo, Colorado

Earning your masters degree can lead to career advancement while furthering your personal and professional development. However, for many busy educators, completing graduate coursework on a university campus is simply not a realistic option. Fortunately, there’s another option: online graduate-level coursework.

Choosing to earn graduate credits online through an accredited program provides teachers with the opportunity to complete their graduate degrees at their pace — from the comfort of their homes. Pursuing masters degree coursework through online learning also makes earning an advanced degree more affordable. Another benefit is the collaboration that comes from communicating with and learning from other students/professional educators across the country — and around the world.

When enrolling in online graduate courses, you choose when you view interactive lectures and complete exercises and assignments. While you may not be attending class at the same time as your fellow students, rest assured that you will still have meaningful opportunities to connect and interact with other educators in your program and with your instructors.

Deadlines for submitting discussion comments and written materials help keep you on track throughout the duration of each course. Courses are offered in an ongoing, accelerated eight-week format. This means there’s no need to wait until the start of a traditional fall or spring semester to begin earning your masters degree and advancing in your career.
