Philadelphia, PA – April 2, 2008 - Drexel University Online, a pioneer in internet-based education programs, aims to provide quality education options to busy educators seeking to excel within the education field. According to the National Center for Education Statistics 2008, nationwide, 2.4 million teachers will be needed in the next 11 years due to growing enrollment and class size reduction efforts.
“With a growing demand for more teachers, it is important for us to provide programs for students to gain the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in the field of education,” said Dr. William Lynch, director of Drexel University’s School of Education, which was recently ranked among “America’s Best Graduate Schools 2008” by U.S.News & World Report.
Drexel Online enrolls approximately 800 education students per year. “The ease of online courses facilitated the completion of my coursework while working full-time,” said Amy Shipley, a Drexel Online graduate, and a fully-licensed biology teacher in Virginia.
All online programs are developed and taught by Drexel’s nationally renowned faculty. Students have 24/7 online access to class materials, group discussion, instructor feedback and exams.
"The education programs offer the perfect combination of quality and convenience for working adults,” says Dr. Kenneth Hartman, academic director at Drexel Online. “A world class degree program is now just a ‘click away’ for students interested in obtaining the skills and knowledge necessary to be leaders and administrators in the field of education.”
Applications for Drexel's online education degree programs are now being accepted. Online class space is limited. Applicants are encouraged to apply early to ensure availability on their preferred start date.
