Master of Education
Courses of study are based on the realization that specific methods of shaping and operating educational organizations change, but sound theory related to management, decision making, human relations, and participatory leadership remains constant.
In general terms, the program provides candidates with an expanded awareness of the roles of school leaders; an ability to identify and prioritize steps that lead an educational institution toward continuous improvement; a wide variety of approaches to school leadership that reflect flexibility in methodology and outlook; opportunities to learn from, and share ideas with, colleagues and other practitioners; opportunities to build leadership experience; knowledge of current research concerning school reform and innovation; and support in developing the self-confidence necessary for providing leadership to others.
