Masters Degree in Educational Leadership
The Masters of Educational Leadership degree program at UHD is specifically designed to prepare K-12 educational leaders to better meet modern demands. America needs transformative leaders in K-12 education whose passion for quality and equity is matched by a firsthand knowledge of effective leadership strategies for learning and development, a firm grasp of school regulations at the federal, state, and local levels, and the organizational management skills to translate visionary ideas into overall school improvement.
The program, which will admit its first cohort in Fall 2023, is designed for students currently holding a teaching certificate and working towards principal certification. The courses for the MEDL degree program are taught in an online delivery format with interactive online sessions as scheduled by the instructor and are complemented by a full practicum experience.
