When you earn an Education Specialist (EdS) degree online, you can gain specialized skills that can help you take your career further—and make a positive, sustainable impact on student learning and achievement. Walden’s EdS programs are designed to give you advanced knowledge and leadership skills to prepare you to become a leading educator in a variety of K–12 settings. Study the latest developments through interactive case studies and real-life scenarios, while leveraging current research and technology to navigate complex educational issues.
If you’re not ready to pursue a doctorate, the EdS degree is a faster, more affordable way to increase your expertise in a specific area, enhance your value as an educator, and qualify for a leadership role. As an EdS student, you will complete an integrated capstone project instead of a doctoral study or dissertation.
