The College of Education’s Global Programs enrolls students from around the world in online and hybrid degrees and certificates. Our students work in education across the globe taking online asynchronous and synchronous courses during the school year and during school breaks. Some programs include in-person intensives in summer at our campus in Bethlehem PA and in other international destinations. These mixed-format programs allow students to take advantage of the benefits of flexible online course content and immersive in-person learning. All of the programs are built for full-time teachers, counselors, and administrators and allow for the student to set their own pace through the sequence of the courses in their program. Our global degrees and certificates have prepared students to advance as educational leaders around the globe since 2001.
