This 30 credit-hour M.Ed. specialization in Teacher Leadership prepares pre K-12 practitioners to take on leadership roles in the curricular decisions and instructional practices in their schools. By providing practical, hands-on instruction for teachers who want to learn more about teaching in a distinctively Christian manner in public or private schools, this specialization equips teachers to articulate a Christian perspective for education and prepares them to translate that perspective and lead others within their classroom, school, and community.
Courses offered in 15-week semesters and 8-week summer terms.
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!
