Our program offers a hybrid delivery method - courses are offered online during the fall and spring semesters and face-to-face during the summer. This format allows individuals from around the globe the opportunity to attend Lehigh and to become a leader in their field. Our face-to-face training is critical to prodocuing the best leaders.

The College of Education's distance education program, managed through the Office of Global Online Graduate Degrees and Training since 2001, is designed specifically to reach the global community. We offer both graduate degree programs and professional institutes at our summer sites around the globe, and on-line courses throughout the academic year. 

The program has grown to support students from 67 countries across five continents since its inception in the summer of 2001 with eight students enrolling in classes in Bethlehem, Pa. The office was founded under the leadership of Dean Roland Yoshida with Dr. Daphne Hobson serving as the first director. The office was developed to formalize all of the international activities that the college had long been participating in throughout its history. 

Our office facilitates enrollment, admissions, and program support for all hybrid degrees and certificates as well as connecting the faculty of the college with a myriad of international organizations.

International School Services and Lehigh University’s College of Education are pleased to announce we are moving forward with a joint initiative to provide graduate courses to administrators, teachers, and counselors at ISS schools worldwide! Through this joint partnership, ISS and Lehigh’s College of Education will begin offering courses in their Educational Leadership and International Counseling programs starting in 2018. Results of a previously issued survey indicated that a majority of ISS school personnel are interested in pursuing graduate coursework in Educational Leadership and International Counseling, whether in Certificate program or Master’s Degree formats. Cohorts of 12-20 students will be accepted for each program. Lehigh’s College of Education is working with ISS staff to create instructional videos and individualized live Zoom sessions to help interested ISS teachers and administrators navigate the application process. The College of Education will provide dedicated staff to answer questions and assist during the entire application and admissions process.
