Leverage Your Leadership Strengths
When you earn your Master of Science in Educational Management from a nationally accredited program, it shows future employers that you’ve received the highest level of training and education available. With accreditation through the Council for the Accreditation of Educational Programs, the M.S. in Educational Management at University of Houston-Clear Lake has proven its curriculum meets the most rigorous standards. The coursework provides a blend of academic and fieldwork experiences and offers a Principal as Instructional Leader certification that is also accredited through the Educational Leadership Constituent Council.
You’ll become prepared to bring innovative and workable solutions to the challenges you’ll face as a school administrator, and you’ll build the needed skills to evaluate transformational concepts and technologies, conduct meaningful assessments and develop curricula that meet a wide range of learning objectives. Because courses are offered both face-to-face and in an online hybrid format, you have the flexibility to complete your coursework according to your work schedule.
Become a Change Leader in Your School
Learn to model the behaviors of collaboration and effective teaching that you’ll expect
from the teachers on your staff. You’re on your way to becoming an instructional innovator
and coach, and that’s why your coursework focuses on educational leadership skills,
effective leadership in learning environments, state and federal school law, and school
finance. In addition to the Master of Science with Principal as Instructional Leader
Certification, you will also earn the required Advancing Educational Leadership (AEL)
and Texas Teachers Evaluation and Support System (T-TESS) certificates.
