Designed for educators that seek additional expertise in their field but cannot commit to doctoral study, NGU’s Education Specialist (EdS) degree offers an opportunity to advance your career in K-12 Administration and Higher Education Administration. Complete the degree in as little as two and a half years—online, on your time.
The Education Specialist degree sits between the Master of Education (MEd) and the Doctor of Education (EdD) programs. The EdS courses are taught at the doctoral level, which allows credits to be applied to EdD requirements later.
