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.
I chose to pursue the Master of Education in Transformational Curriculum and Instruction to deepen my understanding of teaching practices. My current professor has been incredibly supportive, making herself available to answer questions, provide support, and offer feedback. I am learning much from my peers through online discussions and collaborative tasks. The program is designed to cater to a full-time employee and parent, like myself. I am beginning the graduate degree ten years after receiving my undergraduate degree. I am so grateful for the flexibility of the program and the guidance I have received from my advisor.
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 decision to earn my Master of Education from Florida Southern College was an easy one. Their incredible undergraduate program provided the academic foundation I needed to achieve my goal of becoming an educator, but it also lead to my desire to pursue a higher degree. The Master of Education program fit perfectly into my life as a full-time teacher. The program hours were flexible, professors were accessible, and my adviser kept me on track with my personal timeline. Throughout the Master of Education program, I was challenged to think critically, read deeply, and significantly consider my research. Those challenges created in me a desire to better understand the many aspects of education in our society and the issues that face our teachers and students as they pursue their own academic success.
The online Master of Education at Florida Southern is innovative and challenges you to reach your full potential as an educator. The online collaboration between teachers is rich with ideas that can be implemented in the classroom. I highly recommend FSC's Master of Education program.
The graduate program at FSC allowed me to experience professional growth in the areas of educational research, content, and theory. In addition, I felt supported by the program in the application of learning making it relevant to today's educational demands.
My experience at Florida Southern College was amazing! The professors go out of their way to help and I was able to get my degree online at the convenience of my own schedule.
The greatest take away from the program are realistic teaching methods that I can do within my classroom. They are simple and practical but allow for growth among the students and educators. If I had any questions regarding my classes, they were answered right away by email. The online aspect made it possible to interact with people all over the state and learn how different counties do things. This was extremely beneficial because I now have a decent amount of colleagues that can provide me with new ideas when I’m at a loss. The master's program has made me consider how I handle situations within my classroom. The transformative teaching program has helped me become a better teacher and person by showing me how to allow students to take ownership of their learning in and outside of the classroom. I chose this program because I could complete it anywhere in the country on my own time and I knew it would result in me being the best teacher for my students now and the ones that have yet to come.
