Online Learning with Lasting Impact
American University’s online School of Education is proud to offer you an excellent, one-of-a-kind education. Our combination of innovative technology, carefully considered curricula, and valuable partnerships will fully prepare you to become the world-changing educator you set out to be.
As a student in one of our online programs, you can expect:
Live sessions are highly interactive and take place in the Zoom video platform. Our faculty uses a portion of these sessions to answer questions and clarify confusing or difficult concepts, but the bulk of this time is spent on student-centered activities. Live sessions are approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes, and the dates and times are shared with students as early as possible to ensure they can attend.
MAT Student Teaching: American University will work with you to arrange student teaching experiences alongside teachers in schools near you.
EdD Residency: Students are required to attend three residencies at American University, allowing students to broaden their connections with faculty and advising staff, familiarize themselves with the various academic and professional resources American University offers, and deepen the relationships they have forged within their cohort.
