November 23, 2010 | | Leave a comment Ashford University recently announced the launch of its bachelor’s program in education studies, which is designed for individuals who wish to work in the modern classroom. School officials say that the bachelor’s in education studies is a hybrid degree, as it combines face-to-face interaction with distance and online learning. Furthermore, the program aims to prepare students for a broad spectrum of school environments, both traditional and technology-based classrooms. "The flexibility to add a specialization chosen from five different areas will provide students with unique educational expertise," said Rebecca Wardlow, College of Education program director. "Children who have been raised in a digital world will require teachers who understand the overlap of technology and education. The bachelor's degree in education studies can provide that." Officials added that the degree will allows graduates to focus their course load, which can enable the program to cater to each student’s major including early childhood education, child development and instructional design.
