Calculate the Value of Your Master’s Degree

As an educator, you’ve already completed at least one degree so you know—getting a college degree is an investment! Like any investment, it’s important to understand the value you—and your career—will see in a master’s degree.

What kind of investment will you need to make?

Graduate school tuition varies widely by school and degree type. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the average graduate tuition and required fees in 2017 was $18,416. At The Art of Education University, we’re committed to making your degree affordable, you can find the current course and program costs here.

But keep in mind, your investment won’t just be in tuition and fees—but also in time to take courses and complete assignments.
