Therefore, we work to stay value-priced as a university helping students get the most out of their dollar, and are consistently ranked among the “best value” colleges, providing a notable return on investment (ROI) for graduates. The College of Education offers a variety of online and hybrid courses, graduate certificates, masters, PhD, and licensure programs.
