See catalog: Education Specialist in Leadership
The nationally recognized and state approved Education Specialist 34-credit program is based on the belief that leadership must be distributed throughout schools and school districts. Thus, this 22-month program prepares teacher leaders as well as administrators to provide the leadership needed by effective school organizations.
The Ed.S. program emphasizes a cohort structure with the belief that learning is increased by the ongoing interaction of all members of learning communities. A mentorship is required with the belief that theory must be linked to practice. A program portfolio is required with the belief that reflection on practice is key to building leadership capacity. Cohort members will develop the skills, knowledge, and dispositions needed to play many different leadership roles within the education profession.
Displayed below are all of the current locations offered for the Ed.S. in Leadership with MI K-12 Administrator Certificate program. Students are encouraged to apply for their preferred location (residence in a specific county is not required).
