Program HomeThe Diabetes Education and Management Program is an interdisciplinary 36-credit Master of Science degree — the first of its kind. We will equip clinicians and care managers with a greater understanding of how diabetes develops and evolves across different populations; how to help patients manage treatment of their illness; how to develop, implement, and evaluate diabetes self-care management programs; and how to conduct advocacy at the national, state, and local levels. The program is offered entirely online.
Program requirements include coursework and a culminating project in which students will demonstrate their integration of the content they have learned. In addition to courses with content specific to diabetes, the program includes courses currently offered through the Health Education, Nutrition Education, Nursing Education, Human Development, and Adult Learning and Leadership programs of Teachers College.
