My professors encouraged me throughout the program. As a result, I am more prepared as an educational leader and look forward to my future in the education field.
As a highly qualified educator, I wanted to continue my education in my field of study. It was important to me to find a program that was flexible for working adults. Florida Southern’s Master of Education in Curriculum was conducive for my needs, offering the flexibility that allowed me to work and enjoy family time. The graduate program was completely online so I never needed to commute to a classroom. One of the requirements for graduation is to complete a Master’s thesis. My professors made this process very understandable and manageable. They walked me through each step and provided insightful feedback on my study. I was able to earn my master’s degree in less than two years!
The Florida Southern Elementary Education program has been a great help in every way. The flexibility and support has been evident throughout my entire journey here.
I chose the evening program at Florida Southern because it fit my work schedule. The school schedule was very convenient as I had some face-to-face classes, some online classes, and hybrids. I was able to balance my work and a school schedule in a healthy manner. My teachers and advisors were always there to answer my questions and or concerns. I’ve made many friends and professional contacts at FSC. I am happy and proud that I chose the evening program at Florida Southern!
The Elementary Education program is offered in a hybrid format with face-to-face and online classes. Face-to-face courses meet in the evenings (6:30 – 9:30) or on Saturdays. This schedule is designed for working professionals.
