Education Leadership, M.S.

 

The Hood College Graduate School's Educational Leadership programs apply principles and theory directly to today's K-12 school settings. Classes, offered at the school's Frederick, Maryland campus, are taught by proven public school administrators who speak the language of 21st century education. They know how to motivate staff and students and connect with families through a shared vision. The result is instruction that is firmly grounded in sound, practical knowledge.

Internship

Hood’s unique school-based internship offers an authentic, real-world leadership opportunity before graduation. Under the mentorship of a working principal, students participate in scheduling and staffing decisions, conduct action research, mentor a teacher and generally immerse themselves in the culture and challenges of the school year.

Two tracks, top results

The program offers two pathways to certification as an assistant principal, principal or supervisor: a 36-credit curriculum for certified teachers without a master’s degree or an 18-credit program for those who hold a master’s degree in a related field. Both meet the Maryland State Department of Education requirements for Administrator I and II, and both produce remarkable results, with 97 percent of recent candidates reporting they passed Maryland’s required School Leaders Licensure Assessment the first time they took it.

NCATE accredited

The program has been comprehensively evaluated and nationally accredited according to a set of research-based national standards for the preparation of teachers and other professional school personnel developed by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.
