Distance Learning and Video-Conferencing

Distance Learning

The Graduate Studies Office provides online courses in its Master of Education Degree programs. The M.Ed. degree is designed for certified teachers, and offers four areas of study:

  • The M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction
  • The M.Ed. in Educational Leadership
  • The M.Ed. in Learning Disabilities
  • The M.Ed. in Literacy

Calvin does not offer an entire M.Ed. online. Online courses enable educators to work on their degree during the school year and complete on-campus courses during the summer.

Calvin College does not presently offer undergraduate courses online.
