Educational Leadership:

 
Education
This program does not include a student teaching component, and does not therefore lead to licensure, but may lead to career advancement for those already licensed as teachers. This program is designed for individuals interested in educational administration in the PK-12 setting and social services settings for children, but who must postpone a school site-based administrative internship or do not choose to seek a K-12 principal's license. The Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) and the Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) standards form the foundation of this program of study. Courses are taught by expert practitioners in their respective fields who share knowledge and experience in areas of school and business leadership, administrative foundations, organizational theory and culture, PK-12 legal issues, public school finance, curriculum development, and instructional and team leadership. As an opportunity to apply theory to practice, practicum/field experience hours are embedded throughout the program. The Action Inquiry process frames these experiences. Benchmark assessments within each course guide students through observation, practice, and hands-on leadership experiences. Graduates of the program are prepared to become educational leaders in the home, church, private schools, and other settings not requiring a principal's license. To be admitted into this program, three years of teaching experience is strongly recommended. Students who complete this program and then desire to secure a principal's license will be required to complete the program requirements of the Master of Education in Educational Administration.
