01 Accelerated Completion Time
Merrimack’s online M.Ed. program was built for teachers by teachers who understand what it’s like to juggle work and family commitments. With convenient 8-week sessions, you could be done with your degree in about 9 sessions, which is less than 2 years!
Merrimack offers a competitive tuition rate among other Massachusetts programs. With financial aid, scholarships, and employer benefits, the financial advantages increase even more. Consider that the average salary increase in Boston for a teacher with a master’s degree is $4,721* and you’ll understand why Merrimack College is a great value.
03 First Online Competency-Based M.Ed. in Massachusetts
Our competency-based online M.Ed. program is the first of its kind in Massachusetts, allowing you to work at your own pace, focusing on the concepts and skills that are relevant to you. The program allows you to demonstrate mastery of skills through projects combined with personalized professor feedback. Faculty members are available to serve as mentors to help on your path to success.
04 Personalized Guidance, Every Step of the Way
Before you take a single course, you’ll talk one- on-one with an M.Ed. career mentor who will customize your curriculum map, understand your career goals, and ensure you stay on track to master the skills you need to succeed in your career.
05 Our Students Love the Program
“With the online competency-based format, I have the ability to progress at my pace through the course objectives. As a full-time teacher and mom with two teenage boys, life is pretty busy. Without question this program has provided the most flexibility of any program I have ever taken.”
