Master of Education – Educational Leadership (40520)
The Educational Leadership graduate level license program at the University of Rio Grande is available only to those candidates who already hold a teaching license or certificate in Early Childhood, Elementary Education, Middle Childhood, and Adolescent to Young Adult, Multi-Age, or Secondary Education. This program prepares teachers to work in a leadership role in an educational setting. There are prerequisites to the program that insure that, regardless of the current license or certification, the candidate will have a basic knowledge of all age levels. Candidates who are seeking licensure for "Principalship" must take Internship and pass Praxis II. Some of the core courses are offered during the academic year as Internet courses. Other courses are offered during the summer. Students must successfully complete an examination prescribed by the state board of education, complete two years of successful teaching, and hold a 5-year professional teacher license at the age levels for which the principal license is sought. Licensure requirements are subject to change.
