Message from the Dean

From its beginnings in July of 1995, The Boyer Graduate School of Education has drawn students from all regions of the United States and many foreign countries. Superintendants, principals, classroom teachers and many other individuals involved in both public and private education and training have benefited from our practical approach and affordable tuition.

Students tell us the one thing that stands out in their education from our graduate education programs is practicality – they use what they learn and learn from what they do.

All of our faculty members have current professional experience to draw upon, making our School relevant to today’s changing educational climate – not yesterday’s. They are involved in a sundry of administrative posts around the country – superintendants, curriculum experts, principals and human resource managers to name a few.

We believe the distance learning nature of our School and affordable tuition structure has opened educational opportunities to individuals who would otherwise find the commitment to pursue a graduate degree too great a burden on their personal and professional lives.

We encourage you to compare The Boyer Graduate School of Education to other similar graduate programs in education. I am confident you will find our faculty’s credentials, the rigor and relevance of our curriculum and our commitment to serve our students is second to none.
