The master's in education degree programs at GCU offer opportunity for those with a calling to education to either advance their knowledge or begin their journey towards licensure. Our advanced programs for continuing education are designed for current educators looking to continue growing their knowledge in the field, with a focus on advanced methods for highly effective educators.

For those seeking licensure or looking to enter the field of education for the first time, but with a degree in a field other than education, we have initial programs that lead to licensure and programs that do not lead to licensure. In these programs, you will gain a rich foundation in learning, leading and serving from our College of Education.
