The Rockhurst University Master of Education in Educational Studies is designed for educators looking to advance in their current position, improve their educational practice and become leaders in their professional settings.


Students in the Master of Education degree program in Educational Studies  from Rockhurst University analyze alternatives in curricula, evaluate teaching methodologies and assessment strategies, as well as consider the implications of such alternatives for a multicultural society. Through rigorous coursework, varied field experiences and service learning projects, students acquire a deep understanding of, and special sensitivity to, the challenges and rewards of leading in an educational setting.

Rockhurst accommodates busy schedules with classes offered face-to-face, blended, and online. All courses start at 5 p.m., allowing students to work part-time or full-time day jobs. Field experiences and service learning projects may require some scheduling flexibility, however.
