Education Specialist Degree Now Offered at FGCU

FORT MYERS, FL - The College of Education at Florida Gulf Coast University announces a collaborative partnership with the University of Central Florida to launch an Educational Specialist degree program on the FGCU campus in January 2006.

While UCF has previously granted Ed.S. and Ph.D. degrees to students who have enrolled in coursework on the Ft. Myers FGCU campus, this year's cohort will mark the first shared initiative between the two schools.

The degree program, in Curriculum and Instruction, will begin in mid-February with two courses per semester. The target graduation date is Spring 2008.

Interested parties are invited to attend an informational open house from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at FGCU, in Academic Building 3 #205, on December 19, 2005.
