Thomas University seeks to make the Master of Education program as flexible as possible. Many of our students are working full time in addition to their studies. The program can be completed at the student’s own pace or in as little as one year with a heavy course load. The program can be started in any semester. Please see our Master’s Course Progression for the current schedule of course offerings.
