The William Carey University School of Education has seen an enrollment increase in each trimester of the 2014-2015 academic year, school officials recently announced.
Dr. Ben Burnett, dean of the School of Education, said the spring trimester saw the largest enrollment increase with a jump of eight percent.
“Much of the growth is due to new online programs,” said Dr. Burnett.
The School of Education has recently upgraded existing programs or added new programs in online formats, including the specialist’s degree in instructional leadership. This program is intended for students interested in careers in public, parochial or private school leadership. Two tracks, instructional leadership or instructional assessment, are offered in the program.
