The program in advanced studies in education is designed for individuals who have earned a master's degree and wish to complete additional graduate work without commitment to a degree program. The program of study is specific to the needs of each student and includes appropriate sequence of academic courses. Completion of the program leads to a certificate of advanced studies. All coursework (18-30 credit hours) to the certificate must be completed at Saint Xavier University. The student needs to meet with the Chair in the Education Department to discuss the program of study. Once the student's needs are assessed, the Department Chair will determine if the student will be better served by the Department Chair or program faculty as the advisor.
