The challenge is finding a high-quality, fully accredited, higher-education program that understands the demands of a teacher’s salary and schedule.

The Gettysburg College–Gilder Lehrman MA in American History is pleased to announce MA+15/30, a new program designed specifically for teachers with an MA degree who want to earn post-graduate credits as they continue their career advancement.

Expanding our MA in American History partnership with Gettysburg College through MA+ allows teachers who already have a master’s degree to take courses and earn additional graduate-level credits in a program designed with them in mind. With mostly asynchronous coursework and at just $750 per course, the MA program is highly accessible.
