Education Knows No Boundaries in the 21st Century
Our global society needs professional educators who understand different cultures, learning styles and educational systems. NCU’s international education specialization teaches you the knowledge and skills necessary to work effectively within the context of global educational, political, cultural and community influences in education. You will explore theories of comparative education, cross-national comparative analysis and strategies, global educational transfer and borrowing, international development, and the relationship between culture and education. You will examine the global dimensions of contemporary issues in international education, including the hopes of global cooperation as well as the complexity of educational accountability, authority, and professionalism. You will be prepared to examine global trends and issues in the field of education, recognize the various dimensions of educational interventions and be able to analyze the implications for students nationally and internationally. The international education specialization can help you develop the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare you to pursue careers in international education.
The NCU Difference
At Northcentral University, we understand that today's educators and administrators face new challenges every day and must commit to the lifelong pursuit of learning to keep up with the ever-changing educational landscape. NCU's School of Education helps prepare students to meet these challenges by providing stimulating, relevant and career-focused bachelor's, master's, specialist, and doctoral degree programs in education. NCU’s education approach was developed to meet the needs of your busy life and schedule. Ideal for self-starters and independent thinkers who want a premier education with unprecedented flexibility, we use a unique one-to-one learning model that pairs one student with one doctoral professor for each course. With no teaching assistants, you learn directly from experts who provide personal feedback and professional insights. With NCU’s online learning model, there are weekly starts for every program or course. None of our programs have residency requirements, allowing flexible access to you no matter where you live. When you enroll in NCU to earn an advanced degree in education, you will become part of a community of professionals who are already making a difference around the world.
“NCU was a great opportunity to [earn my degree] completely online, while being a part-time, single dad, working full-time and going to school. With the one-to-one learning model, I had great professors and my individualized education just seemed to be right what I needed at this time for my career, as well as my educational aspirations. It was just a great opportunity.” – Rodney Holloway, Master of Education (2016)
