M.Ed. Educational Leadership (Online)
The Educational Leadership Master of Education (M.Ed.) Degree Program is a fully online 36-credit graduate program designed to prepare Educational Leadership (EDLD) candidates for Tier I initial leadership positions that include P-12 school level assistant principals or the equivalent, or other LUA staff who do not supervise principals pursuant to the GaPSC Educational Leadership Preparation rule (Rule 505-3-.77). Students must be currently employed in P-12 setting and possess a Professional Level Four Certificate or higher in a teacher, service, or leadership field. Embedded within this program is Tier I leadership certification, which may be taken independently as an 18-credit Tier I Educational Leadership Certificate-Only Program for those who already possess an M.Ed., as well as a 9-credit Teacher-Leader Endorsement (TLE). Either program is available as part of the M.Ed. program or may be taken separately depending on an individual’s current credentials. The program is administered through the cohort model, and the course sequence is prescribed and provided to candidates upon admission. The 250 required hours of clinical practice are job-embedded and performance-based throughout the program, and are guided cooperatively by the university and the school/district partner via supervised field experience courses.
