Educational Specialist Degree Programs

An educational specialist degree is an option for those individuals who may already have a background in teaching and would like to deepen their knowledge of a certain field. The degree is primarily designed for those people who seek advanced certification above that attained through a regular teaching degree. Most individuals who enroll for this type of program would already have attained a master’s qualification in teaching. There are specific areas of study that may be pursued within an educational specialist degree course. If you have a specific career path in mind it is important to research the different programs and educational establishments in full prior to enrolling. It can also be worthwhile contacting your local State Department of Education to be clear on the requirements for specific occupations within the field of education. The education specialist degree is an intermediate degree between a master’s degree and a doctorate in education, and is designed for professionals who are seeking advanced teacher certification or career advancement beyond the master’s degree.
