The College of Education and Human Development launched the first online degree program at Jackson State University in 2009 as a collaborative with Education Online Services Corporation. Since that time the program has seen tremendous growth, having now reached an enrollment of 300 students. The bachelors of science degree in Childcare and Family Education prepares students for careers in early childhood education and allows students to matriculate without having to commute to campus.
Through the collective of Jackson State University and Education Online Services Corporation, plans are now underway to launch the Masters of Arts in Teaching (Elementary and Secondary) Alternate Route Programs starting Fall, October 2012. For additional information on any of these programs, please contact Dr, Rodney Washington at 601-979-2341.
