Education Graduate Programs

Northern Michigan University's graduate programs for educators are offered online and include certificates, master's degrees, specialist programs, and individual professional development courses depending on your needs and interests. Faculty members like Dr. Joe Lubig and Dr. Sandra Imdieke have extensive K-12 experience and national leadership experience, including Dr. Imdieke's recent position as chair of the Caldecott committee. 

NMU's small online classes allow candidates to develop relationships with other education professionals working in varied disciplines and grade levels around the state, the country, and the world. Our online delivery method supports our candidates, most of whom are current teachers, in pursuing an advanced degree or endorsement while also working full-time. Practicing teachers are also able to apply their learning immediately in the context of their own classrooms. Class sizes are capped at 18, and students often have several classes together throughout their program.

For more information about applying or about our programs, call Nancy Carter, Graduate Programs Coordinator at 906-227-1625.
