USC Rossier Online

As Rossier continues to expand the online delivery of its quality academic programs, the USC Rossier Online brand encompasses this growing catalogue.

Rossier Online revolutionized teacher preparation three years ago when it began delivering its acclaimed and academically rigorous Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program through an innovative interactive online platform developed by 2tor, Inc. Through the online MAT, Rossier is preparing transformative teachers and impacting K-12 education on an unprecedented scale. Today, the program boasts 1,200 graduates, and nearly 3,000 students have come from every state and two dozen countries across the globe.

Rossier Online programs have now expanded and instructional online platforms allow USC students to fully participate in quality programs from anywhere in the world.

Rossier Online currently offers Master of Arts in Teaching – Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MAT TESOL) to prepare students to be English language teaching specialists in a variety of settings and educational levels.

In the fall of 2012, Rossier Online launched its Master of Education in Advanced Instruction for experienced educators who seek an advanced degree and expertise in areas such as differing abilities, STEM, or humanities at the elementary or secondary levels. Students in both the ME in Advanced Instruction and the MAT will have the opportunity to earn an additional Special Education Credential or a Gifted Education Certificate beginning this fall as well. The ME in Advanced Instruction will also have an on-campus program, beginning June 2013.

USC Rossier Online will offer a Master of Education in School Leadership starting January 2013 for educators who seek K-12 administrative leadership positions such as principalships or assistant principalships. Programs offered through USC Rossier Online are of equal rigor and stature to their on-campus counterparts. Students engage in a virtual campus experience through the interactive social networking platform, with live, face-to-face sessions, self-paced coursework, and field-based experiences in their own communities.

USC Rossier graduates become members of the lifelong and worldwide Trojan alumni family.
