All of the courses in the Master of Education (MED): advanced studies in secondary education program are offered online, so there's no requirement to come to campus. You'll become a member of a cohort group that works together via the Internet.

As a MED student, you're expected to complete degree requirements in five semesters - two courses each semester, including summer sessions.

Courses will use participation in online activities, including small group projects, case studies, papers, exams, discussion and debate, as the basis for earning credits. All of our courses feature asynchronous discussion; i.e., messages are posted at any time and students can see previously posted messages by others. You may participate at any time of the day. 

All coursework can be used to complete continuing education requirements under Act 48 - Pennsylvania. Other states may have similar requirements.
