Principals and school administrators need more than just exceptional teaching skills to steer their schools to success amid today's challenges in education. They need the leadership ability to inspire improvement and the analytical and business skills to see it through. In keeping with the University's longstanding commitment to nurturing educators' professional and personal growth, the online Master of Arts in Educational Leadership prepares students to become effective K-12 principals and administrators through courses offered in a flexible online format.
The online M.A. in Educational Leadership teaches educators to identify and use their natural leadership style, how to analyze data to create a road map for improvement, and administrative responsibilities including human resource management, education law, building diversity and more. Satisfactory completion of the degree program requirements prepares candidates for K-12 Principal licensure. The program includes 6 hours of internship where the interns will work with their principals to gain valuable experience in transitioning from the role as a classroom teacher to that of administrator.
