What You’ll Learn
Educational leadership plays a critical role in the development of students at every age. Better programs, academic performance, and quality of experience are improved by having leaders with advanced training. The Educational Specialist – Teacher Leadership in Schools program will help to prepare you for roles in directing practices aimed at improving low performance in schools. As part of your curriculum, you’ll create a research question, conduct a literature review, and submit a research proposal as a tool for exploring evidence-based leadership applications.
At the culmination of the program, students will address their research proposal in addition to other professional development presentations aimed at demonstrating the leadership knowledge and skills you’ve learned each quarter. This degree is designed to be completed in three quarters, with a required 14 hours each quarter (for a total of 42 quarter hours). The program meets state and professional standards, and supports local, regional, and national employment needs.
