The JBU Master of Education degree in Educational Leadership is a 33 hour program that leads to an Arkansas building-level administrator’s license. Included in the 33 hour master’s program is a 24 hour building-level administrative licensure only program. All courses are taught in an online format that includes both synchronous and asynchronous meeting times.
This program will provide a solid foundation for licensed educators wanting to become transformational building-level administrators. Using a data-based approach to problem solving, the emphasis will be on developing partnerships with students, faculty, families and the community to support student achievement. Our goal is to develop individuals who are able to address the complex challenges facing today’s schools.
Focus of the JBU M.Ed. Educational Leadership program is the development of effective educational leaders who:
- are visionary.
- use data to drive decision making.
- value collaboration.
- are good communicators.
- maintain high ethical standards.
Students must hold a current teaching license and have a minimum of three years of classroom teaching experience to be admitted to the program. Besides course work, students will be required to pass the Praxis Test for School Leaders Assessment for licensure, and present an online portfolio for review at the conclusion of the program.
