M.Ed. in Educational Leadership (Does not lead to initial teacher licensure)
Master of Education in Educational Administration with an Emphasis in Organizational Leadership (Not Eligible for Institutional Recommendation). This next-level educational degree program is designed for any individual interested in the administration of educational and social services for children in the Grade K–12 setting, but who must postpone a school site-based administrative internship, or who does not choose to seek a K–12 administrative certificate. The format and courses of the regionally accredited program are tailored to meet the needs of the adult learner and to maximize the content knowledge that the student already possesses. Courses are taught by expert practitioners in their respective fields who share knowledge and experience in areas of educational leadership, administrative foundations, organizational theory, legal issues, public school finance, curriculum development, and instructional leadership. Opportunities are provided to apply concepts, theories, and research throughout the program. Assignments within each course guide students through observational and practice-based experiences. Participants must have access to a school or children’s social services setting to complete the program assignments. Participants must have a current K–12 teaching certificate. Graduates of the program are prepared to become educational leaders in the home, church, private schools, and other settings not requiring an administrative credential. Graduates are also prepared to move into an administrative internship/credentialing component with Grand Canyon University at a later date.
