Ashland University's Dwight Schar College of Education offers the Doctor of Education, Master of Education, post-baccalaureate (Bachelor's Plus) initial teacher licensure programs, and various licensure and endorsement programs at its Ashland campus, and four regional program centers located in Columbus, Elyria, Cleveland and Massillon/Stark County.
Program continuity and quality are enhanced by full-time faculty and well qualified adjunct faculty teaching at each center. All courses are taught within the parameters of master syllabi which have been developed, reviewed, and approved by the faculty and Graduate Council prior to adoption. Program quality and continuity are also insured by having program directors at each program center. They are available for consultation and support to students as they progress through the program. Admission to the graduate programs should be sought at the center where most of the course work will be completed.
The graduate programs offered by the Dwight Schar College of Education are designed to provide the integrated academic and field-based study necessary to the personal and professional growth of educators.
