Graduate Studies in Education & Leadership

Our advanced programs for educators are designed for candidates seeking advanced preparation in the education professions, including P-12 and higher education. The curriculum includes fundamental, theoretical and practical experiences within multiple areas of study. A wide range of traditional, hybrid (blended), and online courses allow for flexibility without giving up the kind of personal attention Salisbury University students have come to expect.

Study with Us! Stay at Home!

Looking for an online experience with the same one-on-one attention you’ve come to expect? You can have that! Beginning in Fall 2023, all M.Ed. Program courses are offered as hybrid-remote courses. With remote-hybrid courses, some weeks during the semester you are working independently and other weeks you are meeting with your instructor and classmates online via Zoom.

With multiple M.Ed. programs we have a program that can help you make the tomorrow you imagine. Click on a button below to explore your possibilities!

Program directors and advisors are available to answer your questions via email, phone, or Zoom appointment.


Special tuition discounts for residents of Delaware and Accomack County through our  Good Neighbor Graduate Scholarship  make our graduate programs more accessible than ever.
