M.Ed. Educational Leadership Degree Plan

The Master of Education degree with a major in Educational Leadership is a 39 hour program with a comprehensive examination and a state certification examination. The program must be completed within six years. 

Classes are offered in a convenient weekend format. During Spring and Fall semesters classes meet on four designated weekends (Saturday and Sunday). For Summer sessions the format is slightly modified; classes meet on designated days (i.e., Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, or Saturday and Sunday) for four consecutive weeks in June and July. Students may enroll in a maximum of 9 semester credit hours during each Fall and Spring term, excluding an internship and a maximum of 6 semester credit hours in each of the two annual summer sessions. Students may join the program at the beginning of any term.
