first_img June 15, 2006 Regular News NSU offers new ‘Masters of Science In Education Law’ NSU offers new ‘Masters of Science In Education Law’center_img Nova Southeastern University has established an online law program for educators.Offered through NSU’s Shepard Broad Law Center, the “Master of Science in Education Law” program addresses what the school calls “a critical need for educators to be conversant in the expanding body of regulations pertaining to education, school administration, and special education.”The program, which will be offered this July, teaches educators who are not attorneys to better identify, understand, and respond to complex legal issues, such as FERPA, IDEA, HIPPA, and No Child Left Behind, according to NSU. The curriculum focuses on the interrelationship between theory and practice.“The Master of Science in Education Law Program is designed to meet the demand for clear and concise instruction on current trends in education law that directly impact educators and school administrators,” said Timothy L. Arcaro, an associate professor at NSU’s Shepard Broad Law Center and member of the Florida and Pennsylvania bars who serves as the program’s director.All coursework was designed in conjunction with NSU’s Mailman Segal Institute for Early Childhood Studies and the Fischler School of Education and Human Services.“As a senior administrator with a law degree, I recognized that a gap exists between legislation regulating education and the abilities of those charged with interpreting and implementing strategies,” said Geoff Still, who developed the program concept. Still is the director of finance and operations at the Mailman Segal Institute and associate director of the M.S. in Education Law Program.The majority of the coursework is offered online through NSU’s Internet-based distance-learning technology. Students visit the campus during three annual institutes.For more information visit www.nsulaw.nova.edu/online/msedl/index.cfm or call (954) 262-6161.last_img read more
