I'm an online M.Ed student. The assignments are a little heavy for a working parent, but they are excellent quality and well varied. They make you think, open your eyes to non-traditional ways of learning to meet the 21st century educational and employment fields, and prepare you well for speaking to others about what you do, what you know, and how to effectively talk to others about the necessity of changing the education paradigm.

I've always hated doing online message boards before, but at Concordia they are actually real classroom discussions that go on almost every day. At least a quarter of what I've learned is from stuff uncovered by other students in their projects and then shared on the DB. We really do have fun talking with each other! It's even sad when a class is over and the whole group won't be together for the next class because we all have varied concentrations.

Currently I am living in a townhouse, it's very spacious and there are only three girls to a bathroom. I have a roommate and we get along great because the housing application tries to find someone who you'll have the most in common with. The apartments, East Hall and Neil's hall are the greatest places to live! We have 24/7 security and free maintenance. All kinds of free and cheap outings are planned that include transportation and there are scheduled events on campus every day. It's a very friendly campus and easy to find friends that you'll feel comfortable with. The cost is a bit high, but scholarships make Concordia cheaper than a typical state university like WSU. Everything is within walking distance here: shopping, food, bookstore, etc. The housing process is terribly easy and if you're not sure, you can bet on an email showing up to take you through the process step by step before the due date.

I love it! The work load is a little heavy some weeks for a single parent with children, but I'm being well-prepared to develop curriculum and non-traditional assessments, as well as speak to legislators and others on the need to change the education paradigm and write it into law. I love they have a minor at the graduate level. My course of study is M.Ed-Curriculum and Instruction with a minor in Equity, Ethics, and Justice.

By the 3rd week into my first class, I had already received 2 job offers from local tribal schools and one from the local public school district, for any position I wanted-whether classroom teacher or in the curriculum department.

This degree, combined with my B.A. in Organized Management will also help me start a tutoring company that uses non-traditional methods for those students who's learning style is primarily visual or hands-on.
