M.A.Ed. - Educational Leadership


Our Master of Arts in Education in Educational Leadership degree prepares you to be more than a principal.  It prepares you to be a leader, master teacher, and researcher. 

What Is Required?

Classes for the education leadership degree are held online.  To earn the degree, you’ll take 37 semester hours of coursework that focus on topics that matter most to principals, including:

  • Finance
  • Leadership

During the program you spend a total of 500 hours completing field experiences and internships to apply your classroom learning to actual school settings as you take the final two courses. The leadership portfolio you submit with your internships ties your research, coursework and field experiences together.
