The Leadership Studies Program provides students opportunities for enrichment and growth in a collegial environment. Relevant coursework motivates growth in personal and professional competence in leadership roles. As students develop critical thinking skills and an attitude of self-reflection, they are encouraged to define the valuing process, its foundations, and its applications. Throughout the coursework, students explore the interface of current theory with practical applications. The graduate student, under the guidance and support of a licensed school administrator, will serve the school and community as a leader during a practicum focused on school improvement efforts that enhance the teaching-learning process. Students seeking a masterâ€™s degree in Leadership Studies, take the masterâ€™s comprehensive examination to demonstrate their ability to respond from a strong theoretical base to ill-structure scenarios typically encountered in schools. All students are required to complete an online portfolio during their course of study to document their performance on PI 34.03 Administrator Standards.
