Tulane SoPA Launches New Online Master of Education

NEW ORLEANS — From the School of Professional Advancement (SoPA) at Tulane University:

Tulane’s SoPA is accepting applications for its new online Master of Education (M.Ed) degree program with classes beginning this fall. The program was developed in partnership with Noodle, the country’s fastest-growing online learning network.

“Tulane SoPA is excited to offer this new master’s degree, bringing our expertise and a New Orleans perspective to key areas of educational leadership and educational technology,” said Suri Duitch, SoPA dean and vice president for academic innovation.

Designed to help future education leaders improve the equitability and inclusivity of teaching practices within their communities, this program embraces New Orleans as a learning laboratory of different approaches and outcomes. The modality of the M.Ed program empowers students who are currently teaching or working in other capacities to earn their degrees while remaining in the workforce.

“The addition of the Master of Education degree to the university’s catalog delivers on Tulane SoPA’s long-held promise to work in service with and for our larger community,” said Kelly McClure, director of preK-12 education programs and professor of practice. “Our education programs now extend beyond classrooms to school, district, state, private and nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to ensuring accessibility, quality, and life-changing results for all learners.”

“The M.Ed program intentionally seeks applicants with unconventional backgrounds by removing barriers to entry such as GRE/GMAT, TESOL and professional prerequisites. The school is committed to this approach by offering scholarships and financial aid,” said Robin Forman, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost.
