Revised master’s in educational leadership accepted first cohort this fall

Beginning Fall 2016, COE’s Department of Leadership, Technology, and Human Development welcomed its first cohort to the newly revised Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Educational Leadership graduate degree program. The revision was a response to changes from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC) which included the creation of a two-tiered certification structure for educational leadership preparation. Successful completion of this revised program will provide leadership certification adherent to the new regulations at the Tier I level (administered by the GaPSC).

The M.Ed. Educational Leadership degree offers a three-in-one learning opportunity that includes a master’s degree, teacher leader endorsement (TLE), and certification. This two-year program requires 36-credit hours including a total of 250 clinical practice and field experience hours. The College of Education also offers a certification-only option which requires 30-credit hours of coursework.

The M.Ed. Educational Leadership program is designed for practicing professionals in the education field who are interested in obtaining entry-level, P-12 school leadership positions such as curriculum specialists, testing coordinators, and assistant principals. The fully-online curriculum of the M.Ed. Educational Leadership program provides flexibility for working professionals to complete their degree and/or certification while still employed.
