The graduate program in Educational Leadership is designed to provide educators with the skills and concepts necessary to function as a principal on either the elementary or secondary level. Establishing a positive school climate, developing school goals, supervision and evaluation of teaching and non-teaching staff members, and building community support for schools are some of the objectives of the program. Curriculum development and assessment will be a major focus for all candidates. The format for most courses will be experiential with an emphasis on field studies. The role of technology in educational leadership will be stressed.
The graduate program in Special Education is designed for students already holding certification in Elementary Education who seek to advance their professional teaching skills to include students with disabilities. Through field experiences, this program integrates knowledge, theory and practice in preparing teachers to work with students who have cognitive, behavior, and/or physical/health disabilities.
