 Classes to Begin in August for New Online Master’s Program

​The first classes for the online master’s degree program designed by the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) and San Diego State University (SDSU) will begin in August.

So far, 26 educators have signed up for the program to earn a master’s degree in educational leadership with an emphasis in technology.

The 18-month, WASC-accredited program was designed for school professionals who wants to be site leaders or technology officials.

“There’s a real need for a program like this,” said Alicia Gallegos Butters, who’s coordinating the program for SDCOE. “It’s just another way that we are serving the boys and girls of San Diego County by educating their teachers.”

The first cohort is expected to begin this summer.

The program has been in the works for nearly two years. It will be taught by SDSU professors and SDCOE personnel and include information about educational leadership, social media, data analysis, mobile app development, and communication.

The total cost for the 30-unit program is $15,270. More information and application instructions are available on the SDSU website.
