The 36-credit Master of Arts in Education program is delivered in a cohort delivery format. This means you will join a group of colleagues who will progress through the program together, forming a supportive educational community. Cohorts begin each fall. Completion of the MA degree can be expected in six semesters (two years attending year-round).  Students take two courses in each semester – fall, spring and summer. We offer options in the delivery of our classes. Some classes are 100% online. Others are hybrid, where less than 50% is online. All of our classes offer the opportunity to participate via web conference and are recorded for later review as needed. Wittenberg students can make personal connections in the classroom and benefit from the flexibility of our online options.
