Two of the core focuses of the master’s in educational leadership program are learning and practicing the professional and ethical responsibilities of being a school leader. These responsibilities include topics such as:
- School finance
- Education law
- Creating and sustaining positive school cultures
- K-12 legal issues
- Curriculum development
- Professional development
- Empowerment of teachers
- Instructional leadership
To help masters of educational leadership students excel in these areas, the coursework focuses on strategic leadership and management. Master’s in educational leadership graduates will learn how to support teachers at school sites by growing their skills and promoting self-efficacy.
Graduates will learn how professional development impacts teachers’ capacity and performance and improves school culture.
While the Educational Leadership degree from Grand Canyon University does not lead to teacher or principal licensure, the coursework does prepare students to lead in educational settings.
Some public and private schools do not require licensure for school leaders and the masters in educational leadership at GCU would qualify graduates to work in those environments.
Because of the leadership and administrative skills learned in a masters of educational leadership program, some GCU grads have gone on to work as:
- Preschool and childcare center program administrators
- Elementary and secondary school principals
- postsecondary leaders and teachers
- Distance learning coordinators
- Fitness and wellness coordinators
- Educational Administration: Foundations for the Developing Leader
- Education Law
- Education Finance
- Developing and Implementing Professional Development
- Shaping School Culture
