Education Courses

Model lifelong learning and create positive outcomes

We know that a love of learning comes with the territory when you’re an educator. A professional development course can help you expand your educational toolbox (and scratch that itch to learn) in a timeframe that fits your busy schedule.

Creighton University offers a variety of practical professional development courses that can support educators in both public and private schools. Our courses are led by expert instructors, and they offer experiential learning opportunities plus provide skills you can immediately use in the workplace.

Designed with busy professionals in mind, Creighton’s professional development courses are flexible and streamlined. Many are offered online, and shorter time commitments mean they can fit into your busy schedule.

If you’re looking for a broader specialization and have more time to commit to your studies, a Graduate Certificate in Education might be the right fit for you.
