NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Vanderbilt University's Peabody College of education and human development is now accepting applications for Peabody Online, the first online graduate and doctoral degree offerings from top-ranked Peabody College. The university is offering a Master of Education (M.Ed.) in human development counseling with a specialization in school counseling, and a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in leadership and learning in organizations.

The M.Ed. in school counseling comprises 60 credit hours and is designed for aspiring school counselors who wish to work in K-12 settings. Through an interdisciplinary approach, the M.Ed. helps students develop a strong foundation in theories of human development and counseling practice which they can apply to real-world counseling programs. The degree also prepares students for licensure in public and private schools.

The Ed.D. in leadership and learning in organizations is designed for experienced leaders looking to drive impactful and systematic change in the workplace. Students will focus largely on data, analytics, and problems of practice, and emerge prepared to take on roles as effective leaders in organizational development across a myriad of industries in the public and private sector. Students will complete 54 credit hours of coursework and should possess a master's degree prior to enrollment.

Peabody Online's courses are designed and taught by Peabody College's nationally-recognized faculty.
