Leverage Your Leadership Strengths
The University of Houston-Clear Lake, with its alumni footprint throughout Texas and especially the Houston area, provides its graduates not only with a state-recognized high-quality preparation program, but also with the networking capacity to find mentors and colleagues who share and understand the expectations of great leaders. In schools from Sealy to Beaumont, from Galveston to Conroe, you will find UHCL alumni in educational leadership positions who are very willing to support your professional goals. With their support and the support of others, your efforts as a candidate will land you the position you seek. Imagine having the benefits of academic and fieldwork experiences that provide you with the professional understanding of the "right things" and the evidence that shows you've done them.
The Master of Science in Educational Management from UHCL’s College of Education is currently offered in both a traditional, face-to-face class format, as well as a hybrid format, featuring a mixture of face-to-face class sessions and online assignments.
Be at the Forefront of Your School’s Literacy Initiatives
There is a growing need for a balanced literacy approach because of rigorous educational
standards and student testing. The reading specialist certification provides the background
necessary to best serve Pre-K to Grade 12 students. This combination of leadership
and literacy can also provide graduates an edge in the current competitive job market,
opening a wide range of opportunities as principals, assistant principals, literacy
directors, literacy coordinators and program specialists. Courses are offered in both
traditional and hybrid format.
