We design our curriculum to be timely, relevant, and practical—all to ensure your degree is proof you really know your stuff.

Every course focuses on a set of clearly defined competencies that you must prove you’ve learned—through a set group of assessments (text questions, applications, journaling, research and essay evaluation).

That means that what you learn will be directly applicable in your classroom—and in fueling your students’ success. It’s all about real-world applicability so every moment spent studying is time well spent.
