Master of Education Degree (M.Ed.) | Educational Leadership
The Educational Leadership program at John Carroll University prepares teachers and other educational professionals for career opportunities in leadership roles in schools, districts, and other educational agencies. In addition to receiving a master’s degree in education (M.Ed.), the unique program also allows students to earn a Certificate of Assessment and Accountability, as well as Principal Licensure.
Students in the program gain more clinical experiences than traditional educational leadership programs by putting their class learnings into practice within their own school setting. By video recording professional development and teacher evaluations, professors are then able to provide one-on-one coaching and immediate feedback to better develop managerial and leadership skills.
Additionally, the educational leadership program curriculum helps students gain knowledge and aptitude for assessing program effectiveness. By analyzing test scores and other factual information, students learn a variety of ways to measure the success of programs through data-based decision making.
The flexible hybrid and online format allows for degree completion in two years—all while working full time. Alternately, individuals with a master’s degree may take only the necessary courses to additionally gain the certificate and principal licensure components of the program.
