OVU Graduate School to Hold Open House
VIENNA, W.Va. (October 8, 2015)— Where will you be in two years? Aspiring learners can find the answer to that question by attending an informational open house session being held by the Ohio Valley University School of Graduate Education on October 20 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Room 104 of the Stotts Administration Center on campus.
During the session representatives from the school will explain the requirements to enter OVU’s graduate degree program to complete a master of education in curriculum and instruction.
“On average, most of our students complete this degree in only two years,” noted Dr. Toni DeVore, Chair of the OVU School of Graduate Education. “The program is affordable, offered online and flexible, so students can work at their own paces. Many students enrolled in the program have done so to gain an advanced degree for career enhancement or to develop curriculum,” DeVore explained.
Lauren McCoy is a local third grade teacher at Madison Elementary in Parkersburg, W.Va., and a 2012 alumna of OVU’s graduate education program. McCoy, one of the 2015 winners of the West Virginia’s prestigious ArchCoal Teacher Achievement Award said the program provided her with a seamless transition in furthering her education.
“OVU’s program was challenging and pushed me to excel as a new teacher, yet the online experience made it convenient and manageable with my hectic schedule. The courses helped me become a more reflective teacher, which has proven beneficial as I pursue my National Board Certification,” McCoy said.
