Program Description:

Aspiring school leaders pursue coursework and skill development at Teachers College,Columbia University over two consecutive summers and undertake site-based research projects and internships at their schools of employment during the intervening year.  The cohort program allows them to balance full-time employment with graduate study drawing on a diverse group of talented educators whose obligations preclude them from attending courses during the traditional 15-week semester or for whom distance is a barrier to attendance.  The program is 36 credits, is completed in two consecutive summers, and leads to a M.A.or Ed.M degree and School Building Leader Certification in New York State (New York has reciprocity with many states).
