The Master of Education in Educational Leadership prepares educators to be teacher or administrative leaders who build strong, collaborative and effective educational teams.
Designed for working educators, our program allows you to link theory and research to practical issues in your local district as the context for your study. As you complete assignments for each of the leadership degree courses, you will have opportunities to explore issues important in your own classroom, school and district. Courses explore theory and practice from the perspective of both teachers and administrators, building your understanding of each professional's role within the educational team.
You will progress through the program as part of a cohort of educators from your local area. Faculty teach at your cohort's location, with courses in the evenings or on weekends, depending on the needs of your cohort. Each cohort is assigned a faculty advisor who works with cohort members throughout the program.
