While an M.Ed. program delivers broad knowledge that is useful across the educational spectrum, an education specialist degree delves deeply into more specific subject matter.

For some, college is about finding an entirely new career path rather than advancing in one’s current field. After a decade in the banking business, Matt made what he calls “one of the best decisions I’ve ever made” by choosing to pursue a graduate degree in education from Brenau. The quality of the curriculum and instructors attracted him to Brenau, while the flexibility of online courses aided his transition toward graduation, certification and his current role as a special education coordinator.
