The Master's of Education Leadership at Winona State University is designed for teachers and other professional staff in Birth-12 schools who want to develop their leadership capacities as productive change agents and supporters of school-wide initiatives through the promotion of continuous improvement strategies and effective administrative practices. 


Education professionals who enter this degree program are the leaders and future leaders of our schools.  They are distinguished from other educators, in part, by their willingness to take a more active role in the decision-making processes that occur at their schools. 

Students in the Master's of Education Leadership degree program at Winona State University may choose one of two paths.  One path leads directly toward the (Post-Master's) K-12 Principal licensure. Elective coursework is directly related to K-12 Principal preparation. 

Learning outcomes

The other path allows students who are not interested in becoming a K-12 Principal to focus elective coursework on their professional interests and aspirations (e.g., student services, curriculum and instruction, educational technology, student assessment, team leader, mentoring, school business management, early childhood education, alternative education, charter leadership, community relations, and so forth).
