Piedmont University Brings Popular On-Site Degree Programs Back to Forsyth County
Piedmont University, long known for offering advanced degree programs for educators in the school districts where they live and work, is bringing a site-based hybrid program back to Forsyth County in 2023.
The university’s previous cohort program was popular with educators who enjoyed the convenience of on-site classes in several school districts in and around Atlanta. It stalled two years ago due to Covid.
“The site-based hybrid program allows teachers to break free of the Covid online-only constraints and experience face-to-face connections with district colleagues in the classroom while enjoying the conveniences associated with asynchronous online learning,” said Dr. Mark Tavernier, Dean of the College of Education.
“Piedmont’s site-based hybrid program model blends face-to-face and online learning experiences and allows students to forge strong professional connections to a group of colleagues who are working through a common set of courses together,” said Dr. Melissa Tingle, Dean of Online Learning for Piedmont.
Former Cherokee County Schools Principal and Piedmont alumna Dr. Ann Gazell will coordinate the hybrid program. Students will work closely with nationally recognized faculty to achieve their career goals while addressing the most pressing challenges facing education, schools, communities, and students
Educators in the Forsyth County School District may choose from the Master of Arts, Master of Arts in Teaching, and Education Specialist (EdS) degree programs.
The application deadline is Dec. 15, with classes to start in January. Those who are interested may contact Ashley Clouatre, assistant director of graduate admissions at email@example.com.
