The Instructional Coach specialization consists of 12 courses in a 30 credit hour program that prepares the teacher or administrator to be a competent educational leader in the role of instructional coach. The program provides practical, hands-on learning experiences in teaching and leading in a distinctively Christian manner. Coursework focuses on specific strategies for helping to shape the instructional culture of a school and promote staff professional development. Courses and an internship provide experience in implementing school-wide initiatives in curriculum, pedagogy, assessment, and faculty development.


Students may start the program during any term. Most M.Ed. students choose a two or three year plan of study during which they continue to work as a full-time educator. Contact us for a plan that fits your pace and starting point!
