Online Masters of Education Program Draws National Top 10 Rankings | Information Center



The one-year program on curriculum and teaching at the primary and secondary levels has been expanded to include a course helping teachers adapt to the era of virtual teaching.

San Diego State University’s online Master of Arts in Education (MAT) is once again among the top 10 online education programs in the nation, according to a new ranking from US News & World Report.

Ranking #8 Best Online Programs 2022, released on January 25is up seven spots from the previous year’s list and marks the second top-10 ranking in three years for the College of Education program.

SDSU’s one-year program in Elementary and Secondary Curriculum and Education was launched in 2014 by faculty from the School of Teacher Education Valerie Pang and Luke Duesberyand instructional designer Andrea Saltzman Martin.

“This ranking highlights the excellent work of Valerie Pang, Andrea Saltzman Martin and Luke Duesbery in making our innovative online MAT program what it is today,” said Y. Barry Chung, Dean of the College of Education. “They have developed a really dynamic master’s program for teachers that is both flexible and robust. SDSU continues to reap the rewards of its vision and leadership.

The program expanded in 2020 with a K-12 virtual teaching course, tools that proved immediately useful in the COVID-19-induced shift to homeschooling.

“We focus on four key areas and weave them into every course,” Duesbery said. “Research-based teaching and learning, innovative technologies in education, social justice and equity in education.”

“Part of our success is because we treat each cohort from the perspective of the teaching team,” he added. “Ten faculty and staff working together to ensure that every student not only gets what they need, but in a timely manner.”
