Mississippi College provides exceptional leadership education that places a greater emphasis on teaching and learning.

Earn your degree in Educational Leadership

The Master's degree in Educational Leadership is comprised of 36 hours of course work including 150 internship hours and an additional 360 hours of field experiences in the educational setting. Candidates can choose from two (2) delivery methods: traditional or online (MC7). 

A cohesive sequential delivery structure driven by problem-based and problem-centered learning activities is provided. Program anchors include teaching and learning, technology, assessment, diversity, law and public policy, and collaboration. Internship experiences are integrated with course content and additional field experiences are structured to prepare the candidate for the work of an educational leader. These experiences in the educational setting are designed for candidates to work closely with mentors who are practicing school leaders engaging in authentic administrative tasks. Reflection is embedded throughout the program to enable candidates to reflect upon and improve practice.

If you’re a working adult with multiple responsibilities, Mississippi College can help make education more accessible for you. We understand that children, jobs, school activities and more can become overwhelming.
