NAU Master Degree Cohort

Invest in Yourself!

 “We have a fast-track master degree program for you.”
This offer is open to all MCCCD employees, and is an excellent opportunity for PSA and MAT employees who are thinking of career advancement.  Full-time, part-time, OYO, OSO employees, and adjunct faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.

It’s not too late! 
Master of Education in Educational Leadership (M.Ed.) 
Eleven years ago, the MCCCD partnered with Northern Arizona University to form an accelerated cohort program that would allow MCCCD employees to earn, in a two-year period, a Master of Education Degree in Educational Leadership. Most of these courses are taught by MCCCD staff. We have graduated eight cohorts, and our ninth cohort will be graduating this coming August. Since a new cohort will start this fall, we need to begin the process now.

The classes meet on Wednesday evening during fall and spring. During the summer, Saturdays morning, when the MCCCD goes on four-day work weeks. This schedule guarantees a two-year program. The classes meet at Rio Salado College.

The Next Step:
To learn more about the program, get answers to your questions, and to start the application process, contact the NAU Program Coordinator.  You will learn about the program content, tuition costs, financial aid, class schedule, and other important aspects of the program.
