M.S.Ed.-Educational Leadership, Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in Educational Leadership
Based on a foundation of solid research, theory, knowledge, and successful practice, this 36-credit program prepares the professional educator for Massachusetts licensing as a supervisor/director and/or an assistant principal or principal in an elementary, middle or secondary school. Through close work with faculty and stimulating classes, each student will develop the necessary skills to become a leader, communicator, supervisor, and manager – as well as educator. Students gain the necessary competencies to address issues such as school reform and the restructuring of schools. In addition, students will participate in a supervised administrative experience with carefully designed clinical fieldwork and in-class seminars. Simmons has been successful in meeting a wide range of educational goals by providing each student with the advising necessary to develop a successful, individualized program of study. This personalized support is further enhanced by the small classes and close mentoring relationships that students develop with faculty in the program.
Students enrolled in this program may pursue two degree options – the Master’s of Science in Education (M.S.Ed.) or a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (C.A.G.S.). C.A.G.S. candidates must already have a master’s degree.
