As online programs have grown in popularity, online master's in education degrees have become more acceptable, experts say. But some programs are more respected than others. As a result, prospective students looking to use the credential for a pay bump or career switch should do some investigating before they enroll. When it comes to choosing the right online master's degree in education, experts say the reputation of the program matters more than the mode of instruction, regardless of specialty. "I think we're still in a space where the institution granting the online degree continues to have some sway in at least its perceived value," says Catherine Horn, associate education professor at the University of Houston, ranked the No. 1 online graduate education program by U.S. News in 2015.
