Calculate the Value of Your Master’s Degree

Earning a degree requires investing time, money, and effort. Like any investment, it’s important to understand the value that a master’s degree could bring to your career.

What kind of investment will you need to make?

Graduate school tuition varies widely by school and degree type. According to the Education Data Initiative, the average cost of a master’s degree is $66,340. At The Art of Education University, we’re committed to making your degree affordable. You can find the current course and program costs here.

Keep in mind, your investment won’t just be in tuition and fees—courses and assignments require a time commitment. Here’s a breakdown of the typical graduate course workload. Learn how AOEU students balance teaching, parenting, and pursuing a degree. You can do it, too!
