Master of Education in Educational Leadership

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) in educational leadership program is a professional degree program designed to prepare administrators and supervisors in P-12 school settings. Graduates of this program should possess the vision, knowledge and skills necessary to promote excellence and high achievement in schools.

Why Choose Educational Leadership at SU?

Salisbury University’s program is based upon a carefully planned knowledge base and a well-defined philosophy. Graduates should be informed practitioners, possessing a full understanding of the theories that guide practice in school administration. Most importantly, they should demonstrate competence and skill as they apply knowledge to practice in educational organizations. Our graduates respect the individual worth of all persons and appreciate the role of education in society.

Candidates in the M.Ed. in educational leadership program have the opportunity to read, study and discuss a wide range of theories and ideas related to school administration. They have many opportunities to explore ideas through research and study, as well as actual and simulated experiences in practicing the skills of school administration. They should be actively involved in acquiring an understanding of the theories and practice of educational administration through a variety of teaching and learning experiences.

The role of the University in preparing educational leaders extends beyond the boundaries of the campus. The University reaches out to the community to establish positive working relationships with other educational organizations. Cooperation between the University and the schools is essential, as candidates are prepared as school administrators.

Courses in the Post-Master Certificate in Educational Leadership program are offered in a combination of student-centered modalities and formats including hybrid and remote during the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.
