Saint Joseph's has named Dr. Thomas Hancock of Casco, Maine, as the director of its online M.S. in Education program. Hancock has taught at Saint Joseph's as an adjunct faculty member in the Graduate & Professional Studies division since 2002. Previously a program director for many years at Seeds of Peace and a graduate instructor at Southern New Hampshire University, he earned a doctorate in education at Nova Southeastern University. He holds a master's degree from New Hampshire College and earned his bachelor's degree at Husson College.
Hancock says the master's in education at Saint Joseph's helps professionals move into school leadership, create in-service and staff trainings at workplaces, and/or have a greater understanding of the essential education profession. "This online degree fits the student's work and home schedule, because we really want to accommodate them rather than requiring painful sacrifices to reach their goal," he says.
