Graduate program draws students from across the country

Sixty-three students from Washington, California, Colorado, Illinois, Minnesota,

South Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin, New York, and Ontario, Canada, were on campus this summer for the graduate education program's summer on-campus session.

The Dordt College master of education degree is a ten-course, thirty-semester-hour program with a concentration in curriculum and instruction. It provides practical, hands-on instruction for the elementary or secondary teacher who wants to learn more about what it means to teach in a distinctively Christian manner.

The non-traditional program is designed for in-service teachers who wish to complete a master's degree while remaining in the classroom. Participants can select up to three one-week classes for three to four summers, spending minimal time away from home. Each course consists of a pre-campus phase and an on-campus phase. The pre-campus phase involves reading assignments prior to coming to campus. In addition to on-campus courses, online courses and independent studies courses are also available.
