Master of Education: Instructional Leadership

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Department Programs List

The Master of Education Instructional Leadership Program prepares teachers for the residency program administrator certificate. A student shall complete 40 credits in an approved course of study to be developed in consultation with the graduate advisor. This program does not automatically qualify the student for the residency program administrator certificate, which requires that an applicant complete an application, be accepted to the Administrator Certification Program, and complete the required coursework in addition to a 12-credit, year-long internship. The MEd Instructional Leadership Program prepares individuals who can provide appropriate leadership and direction to the school professional staff and to the community by developing and implementing unified instructional programs in the district.

Admission Requirements:
One year of successful, contracted teaching experience in a K-12 classroom setting; minimum GPA 3.0; full admission to CWU; statement of objectives; three references, one must be from your current principal; transcripts from all institutions attended. Note: Completion of the master’s degree does not automatically allow you to achieve the administrator’s certificate.

Students will not be allowed to register for EDAD courses until they have been fully admitted to either the master’s degree program or the Administrator Certificate Program. See your advisor if you have completed recent graduate coursework in intercultural education (i.e., EDF 507).
