This program is specifically designed for already-licensed, practicing teachers aspiring to become school principals. If you can devote 15-20 hours per week to your studies, you’ll be prepared to serve as a highly effective, instruction-based, certified principal. You will learn, for example, how to design and implement effective, standards-based educational improvement plans. The course of study integrates best practices in educational leadership into a case-study approach that culminates in an integrated practicum and capstone project.
The M.S. in Educational Leadership is based on multiple national standards, including the standards of the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) and the principles of the Baldrige National Quality Program’s Education Criteria for Performance Excellence in Schools.
