Master of Science in Education

Targeted for certified teachers who wish to broaden their knowledge and skills related to instructional efficacy, the Master of Science in Education - Curriculum and Instruction (MSED) program combines practical knowledge and best practices relevant to your role as an educator. The required program core will enhance your effectiveness in developing curriculum and meeting the needs of all students through appropriate instruction and assessment techniques.  Program electives will allow you to choose from our four areas of focus: classroom behavior and management, inclusionary practices and policies, instructional mastery, and instructional technology.  With two formats from which to choose, regular or cohort, the Master of Science in Education (MSED) program is convenient and provides the flexibility needed for full time teachers who wish to complete a Masters degree.

Master of Science in Organizational Management

Offering foundational courses in organizational management, Peru State College’s curriculum teaches management as an integrated discipline. As part of a cooperative degree between Nebraska’s state colleges, the Master of Science in Organizational Management (MSOM) program offers three different focus areas: Entrepreneurial and Economic Development to enhance your understanding of the organizational dynamics that drive creative businesses, organizations and communities; Healthcare Administration to prepare future administrators with foundational principles of Healthcare and Business; and Strategic Leadership and Communication to expand individuals' knowledge in leadership, communication, mentorship, and team design as they promote within their career.
