Caldwell University’s online graduate program in Educational Administration is one of the best. The program was recently named to The 25 Best Online Master’s in Educational Degree Programs list put by TheBestSchools.org, which provides in-depth rankings of degree programs and colleges and universities. Caldwell was the only New Jersey college or university to make the list.
Caldwell’s M.A. in Educational Administration is a program designed for students who are seeking certification as a school principal or supervisor, says Dr. Joan Moriarty, education professor and interim associate dean of the Education Division. “Our online program has the same courses, same textbooks, same professors, same requirements and same rigor as our in classroom program. This is solid graduate experience and our students love it because with the online experience they have flexibility to make it work with their professional, family and other responsibilities,” she said. Students who have already received their master’s can pursue the superintendent or principal certifications at Caldwell through the department. The Education Division has received accreditation from by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
Caldwell has been ranking on several outstanding lists these days. For the third year in a row Caldwell was recognized as a College of Distinction, which honors institutions that are nationally recognized by education professionals as excellent schools that are engaging students, providing great teaching and vibrant communities and focusing on successful outcomes.
