The insights you’ve gained as a teacher afford you a unique understanding of the challenges students, schools, and administrators face. Build upon your classroom experiences to develop innovative solutions that will build stronger organizations that serve students, teachers, and staff more effectively. Our M.S. Ed. Program offers a concentration in educational leadership that prepares you to take on leadership roles in your school, district, or other educational organization. This concentration prepares candidates for a building-level administrator's license.
The program requires 36-credit hours of graduate level work. The coursework focuses on the specific challenges the next generation of education leaders will face. It meets the required accreditation outcomes, prepares candidates with required research skills, guarantees that curriculum needs are met, and adds the recognition of a concentration in educational leadership to the M.S.Ed. degree.
