The Delta State University College of Education is set to launch an online master’s of Education degree in Elementary Education, beginning Jan. 8, 2008.
The program consists of 10 required courses, each of which earns 3 credit hours. A 9-hour core addresses educational research, psychology of learning and historical foundations of education. The 21-hour major-specific courses focus on effective instruction in early childhood and the intermediate grades, classroom management, curriculum development and literacy instruction.
The purpose of the program is to prepare quality teachers who have the ability to implement research-based practices at all levels of the elementary school. The program emphasizes online interactions between the student, fellow students and the instructor that are extended through quality field experiences.
