Educational Specialist in Teaching and Learning (Online)

Grand Canyon University’s Education Specialist (EdS) in Teaching and Learning program is a post-master’s education degree which allows K-12 educators to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary for developing education communities that improve student outcomes.

Offered by GCU’s College of Doctoral Studies, this accelerated, fully online EdS program emphasizes theories and models of teaching in various educational environments, from elementary to high school.

Throughout the program, learners will:

  • Examine the global politics of education and the intervention facilitated by government entities

  • Explore ways to train and develop the teams that learners are preparing to lead and support
  • Learn to excel in teaching by studying industry trends, implementing new effective teaching strategies based on original research and applying findings to foster greater classroom success

As a private, Christian university, GCU integrates faith into each of its programs. Courses within the EdS program use a values-based curriculum that addresses socially responsible practices and ethical decision making within education.
