Teacher Leadership

This 30 semester-hour M.Ed. track 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 track 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.
