I'm half-way through my first semester in the school psychology program at fort hays and considering bailing. I'm looking into other career options because 1) I haven't found another school psychology program that I think will work for me and 2) I'm doubting that I would enjoy a career in traditional psychology. I've focused on positive psychology and coaching in the past and am feeling depressed reading through the negative textbooks about what is wrong with people and why they can't learn well rather than how to help them succeed. If I do decide to quit, would it be better to withdraw from both classes with Ws or finish them? Or maybe just drop the class I hate and finish the other one? Before I became an educator, I was an artist and web designer. In one of my, "I'm going to run away and join the circus" moments, I looked up some graduate degrees in graphic design. Even though I was just being silly, I realized I might be able to combine what I love (design) and what I do out of necessity (teach) by getting an EdS in instructional technology that offered the option to take web design, graphics, and instructional design courses. I think my goal would be to eventually get a job as an instructional designer at a university. There are several very affordable EdS programs here in Georgia (university of west georgia, kennesaw, and valdosta state), but it doesn't look like I could customize them by taking the courses I wanted. I found this program that looks good: Educational Technology: Learning Systems Design and Development or Online Educator or Technology in Schools | Online Master's Degree or Educational Specialist or Graduate Certificate | Mizzou Online | University of Missouri Has anyone here gone to this school? Did you like it? Suggestions for other programs? I would like affordable but most importantly I want it to be a program with well taught, enjoyable classes that would prepare me for a career. I prefer classes that are shorter than traditional semesters, either 8 weeks or quarters. Sorry this is so long! The gestalt is, is the Missouri program good and what other schools should I look at?
