Masters Programs for Education

The Ed.M. is a year-long intensive program for students who wish to study a particular field in education, acquire a general theoretical background for understanding past and future field experiences, or develop skills for use in professional work in education. The Graduate School of Education offers 13 different programs, including:

Educating instructional leaders who will have the capacity, skills, and knowledge to create and sustain K-12 charter, district, and pilot schools that foster the learning and well-being of all children.

I have a BS in Education and saw the students getting their MS in Education. The work they had to do was significantly less than what we did in Undergrad. It seems as though the Masters Programs for Education just try to stuff everything in and get students out. It doesn't seem as though there is sufficient time to get all the field experience they need.

Hi, I'm looking at two Masters in Education programs -- both completely online, both accredited (I believe), both earning the same degree. The first one is offered by University of Southern California, the other is offered by California State University at Bakersfield. USC total tuition: $38,000 - $42,000. CSUB total tuition: $9000. Would like to hear your opinions...prestige vs. cost? Does anyone have information about how Master's degrees are viewed after they are earned? Does it matter from where they were earned? What would YOU do? Thanks for your input!
