Educational Leadership Master's Degree

The educational leadership program offers course work for elementary and secondary educational leaders. Program faculty provide instruction, consultation and scholarship that focuses on defining and resolving problems of professional practice in a diverse society. Students who intend to assume other significant leadership roles in public schools, apart from professional licensure, should also consider this degree.

This program consists of newly designed courses that take a broad view of leadership beyond the traditional training of school administrators. Coursework is a combination of synchronous and asynchronous delivery methods. All students will attend the synchronous sessions in person or by videoconference at a designated time/date. The program is designed to meet individual professional goals that lead to district, building and program-level licensure.
