Education Degrees at Grand Canyon University

Why Earn A Master of Education Degree?

If you're a current or aspiring educator, a master's degree in education can open doors for your career, introduce new opportunities and foster relationships while increasing your earning potential.

Each state has its own teaching degree and certifications requirements from early childhood education through college professor, but most states require a master's degree for principal and administration positions. If you have a bachelor's degree in a different field, a Master of Education degree can lead to teaching licensure as you transition into the education profession. If you're currently working in a classroom, a master's in education helps you qualify for endorsements, promotions and pay increases within your school or district.
