Liberty University Online’s Master of Education (M.Ed.) prepares students for leadership roles in Christian, public, and private school systems. Coursework provides focused training for those seeking a position as a K-12 educator or those wanting to further their education by pursuing an Education Specialist degree or Doctor of Education. Along with core courses, specializations offer more specific knowledge in a particular area of interest, such as administration and supervision, teaching and learning, specialized programs, or school counseling.
Liberty Online’s M.Ed. program has state approved advanced licensure (has reciprocity with other states) or endorsements, and is also recognized by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Learn more about program-specific accreditations.
Review the Advising Guide for more specific information concerning Liberty Online’s education degrees.
After completing the non-licensure M.Ed. program in Teaching and Learning through Liberty Online, Chris Mitcheltree began pursuing Pennsylvania licensure for supervision of curriculum and instruction.
“Because Liberty’s degree plan allowed me to choose a lot of my courses, I looked up those required to fill a curriculum and instruction degree [in Pennsylvania] and took the Liberty courses most closely related to those. I sent all my coursework and course descriptions to the Pennsylvania Department of Education, took the state Praxis exam — and waited. I finally got that beautiful piece of blue paper with the gold seal in the mail! They are not requiring any additional classes. Liberty did it all!"
*Students within the Program Specialist or Teaching and Learning specialization must choose a specialization.
Up to six hours of master's-level courses may be accepted, as applicable, into the M.Ed. program (up to 12 hours in the school counselor program). For transfer credit to be evaluated, students must first apply and be accepted to the master's program, then request a transcript evaluation by emailing the Registrar's Office at email@example.com. Only original, official, and unopened transcripts will be evaluated. Courses from a completed degree are not eligible for transfer. More information regarding transfer credit can be obtained by calling the Graduate Admissions Office at (800) 424-9595, option 2.
Those seeking licensure must complete a three-credit-hour internship or student teaching assignment as part of the M.Ed. program.
