Arkansas Masters in Education

Continuing education is important for those who wish to advance, and remain, in the Arkansas school system. More than 44 percent of all Arkansas teachers have their master’s degrees. In addition, all certified public school employees must complete 60 hours of professional development each year. This development time can include up to two graduate-level college courses, which would count as 30 development hours total.

Growing teachers help make growing students. By continuing in your own education, you’ll be able to better help Arkansas students advance in theirs.
