Master of Education in School Leadership

The Master of Education (MEd) in School Leadership program in the College of Education is designed to prepare principals for the many challenges posed by 21st century schools. A combination of coursework and field experiences helps build skills in management, data analysis and instructional leadership, while introducing students to a variety of leadership roles and styles.
