The cohort masters curriculum prepares administrators and faculty in Higher Education. It offers meaningful knowledge and skills through a hybrid delivery format. The schedule enables employed individuals to take courses at convenient times and locations as well as on-line. Courses are offered Friday evenings and Saturdays, no more than seven times during each semester. Summer school courses are part of the curriculum.
Cohort weekend programs are offered away from the Athens main campus and various locations throughout Ohio. A cohort will begin in Fall 2016.
Joni Tornwall, Education Lead with The Digital Union at The Ohio State University, and 2008 alum, wrote:
One of the things I appreciated most about this master’s program was the ability to choose project topics that were important to me. In the process of earning a master’s degree, I gained knowledge along the way that I put to use in my full-time employment in the online learning office at a local community college. I also valued the perspective and insights gained from my peers in my cohort who were working professionals in higher ed. Ohio University’s weekend master’s program was a unique opportunity to interface with instructors, peers, and content which had an immediate impact on my work in progress while giving me the degree I needed to move my career ahead in the future.
