Programs Overview

The School of Education offers over twenty credential, master's and doctoral programs, including programs at our branch campuses. We welcome students who seek to make an impact and who are most committed to serving those most in need.

All School of Education courses are offered in the late afternoon and evening, and/or alternating weekends. Most students find they can maintain a full time job while earning their credential, master's or doctoral degree. However, if your program requires you to spend time in a classroom, (i.e. student teaching) or to complete a fieldwork or traineeship experience, such commitments will interfere with a normal workday. Please consult your intended program of study for more information.

What makes our programs unique

  • Faculty-designed curriculum: Our coursework is designed by those who teach it: educators and practitioners who merge the latest research and trends with student interest and demands.
  • Sequential coursework: In most SOE programs, each semester builds upon the last and prepares you for the next, resulting in a more meaningful and effective learning experience.
  • Outstanding teachers: In teaching evaluations, School of Education faculty consistently receive the highest score among all USF colleges and schools.
  • Diverse student body: The typical School of Education student is either an experienced professional returning to school for additional coursework and experience, or a career changer hoping to break into a new field via a credential, master’s or doctoral program.
