The online Master of Education in Educational Leadership degree program prepares the individuals who will serve as educational leaders in K-12 schools, community/technical colleges, four-year colleges and universities, and other organizations/agencies that offer educational programs and services.
With the changing responsibilities of school administrators, more emphasis is being placed on teachers as leaders. There is increasing demand for teachers to serve as curriculum coaches and coaching other teachers. National Teacher Leader Standards have been used in the development of this concentration.
The program is approved by the Tennessee Department of Education. Programs leading to licensure are also approved by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Student programs are individually designed to develop educational leaders through the study and practical application of educational foundations, theory, research, and field work.
The purpose of the concentration in Teacher Leadership (P-12) is to respond to the changes in administrative licensure in Tennessee.
Applicants must be admitted to the master’s degree program to receive credit toward the degree. Applicants for admission must demonstrate the ability to achieve Tennessee standards for administrative endorsements before being granted consideration for recommendation for public school certification.
Prior to being admitted, applicants must also submit:
a. a completed ETSU application; to include three (3) letters of recommendation
b. a current resume
