What are our students saying...

  • I love that I now have the option of earning my Master of Education from a very highly respected university even though I work full time teaching in the classroom and don't live near the campus. I have wanted to find a program like this for a long time, where I wouldn't have to sacrifice quality for the convenience of an online program.
    – LeeAnn Rupley, USD MEd Online Student - Curriculum & Instruction
  • The skills I have gained from the Online MEd at USD have helped me succeed as a teacher and made me a more confident, effective, and an intentional educator. Working on my M.Ed. in STEAM was something that impressed many people in my interviews and helped me earn job offers at some of the most prestigious boarding schools in the country."
    – Whitney Holmes, USD MEd Online Student – STEAM
  • I chose the University of San Diego's Master of Education-Online program because of the flexibility. Teaching three different subjects, in addition to coaching basketball and roller hockey, it was important for me to enroll in a program that worked around my schedule."
