As an experienced teacher, you understand the challenges that schools and students face.
Now you can build upon your classroom experiences to address the challenges facing the next generation of leaders and develop innovative solutions and more effective organizations.
This challenging curriculum will deepen your leadership capacities, enhance your learning and professional growth, and help you to think critically about the challenges facing education today.
This program is designed for students who are interested in school leadership. While the vast majority of our students have been teachers, we will consider applicants without teaching experience who make a strong case in their personal statements about why they are interested in educational leadership. Relevant work experience in a related field is strongly preferred. Applicants should be sure to discuss prior work experiences and future career goals within the statement. Also, be sure to explain why you are attracted to this particular program.
Please note: An Indiana principal's license is embedded in our master's coursework. In order to qualify for the principal's license, a student must have taught as a licensed teacher or been a licensed counselor for two years. Students with no teaching experience are still welcome to apply to this program but will not be eligible for principal licensure.
