Park University transforms lives through accessible, student-centered, quality higher education.
What Teachers Are Saying
The program is above what I expected. Even though the courses are all online I feel that the instructors know and understand me personally. The instructors are involved in your learning and they want you to succeed. I am very pleased with the courses.
I chose Park University because they offered a 100% online Master's program which was important to me because I live a good distance away and have two small children, so being with them as much as possible is a priority.
The program thus far has gone beyond my expectations. I have learned so much from every class, every instructor, and every book and resource I have purchased for this program. I truly feel like I will be prepared and confident of my new abilities when I graduate from this program.
The motivation for obtaining my Master's degree was to become a better reading teacher. My school was in the process of transitioning from a very strict curriculum to giving us freedom in teaching reading and I wanted to make sure I was doing the best I could for my students.
The skills I gained from Park University’s master’s degree program helped sharpen my critical thinking skills. Having been exposed to Park’s law for principals classes helped me see how the actions or inactions of teachers impact a school through a legal lens.
With my master’s degree from Park University, I was able to move up on the pay scale at my school. This was an immediate benefit for my family. In the future, I could be considered for different positions such as a reading specialist or a reading specialist coordinator for a district. I could also teach some college courses for a university. These are all positions I am very interested in. My master’s degree has definitely opened up new opportunities for me.
This program from Park University helped my career, teaching style and effectiveness, time management and problem solving skills, and made me an all-around better educator. The ease of the online classes allows for a much less stressful transition into graduate school and allows for no work schedule changes, all while still gaining an extremely educational and useful program that I would not have had access to had it not been fully online.
