Educational Leadership

The Masters of Science in Educational Leadership program prepares teachers to become leaders in curriculum, instruction, classroom management, and other critical areas in education and can lead to the Principal license. Program content includes strategic planning and management, communication and collaboration skills, and data-driven decision making; advocacy and ethical leadership are emphasized.

Students who choose to pursue this program will partake in solely online courses and those who choose to pursue the Principal license will also partake in internship opportunities. Students will work alongside faculty to create a program of study that fits their needs and timeline for completion.

“As I progressed through the program, I really appreciated the expertise provided by the teachers and other students in class. Many times, my greatest learning took place while talking with the professors about their own personal experience as a teacher, principal, or superintendent. ”
