Master of Education Overview

Educational leadership training for the 21st century must reflect educational reform that places greater emphasis on teaching and learning. To provide the exceptional leadership required in schools, the bar must be raised; and, Mississippi College's School of Education  has accepted that challenge.

Mississippi College offers a unique Educational Leadership Preparation Program at the master's degree level. Each June, a group of carefully selected cohort members begin a fifteen month modular program consisting of 39 semester hours. The program is delivered by a faculty offering seasoned experience and innovative perspectives to provide a series of modules focusing on six dimensions of leadership:

  1. Personal/Interpretational
  2. Instructional
  3. Organizational
  4. Resource
  5. Political
  6. Informational

These dimensions are integrated with seminars, practicums, and internships, and culminate in formal internships during the last semester of preparation. Cohort members who complete the Mississippi College Educational Leadership Program are prepared to provide immediate educational leadership for schools focusing on excellence in teaching and learning.
