About MA in School Leadership
The Dual-Track MA in School Leadership offers preparation for emerging school leaders in both public and independent school settings. Through the dual-track cohort model, all candidates will complete five core classes together, learning from colleagues as well as from faculty and curriculum. Then the cohorts — for for Texas principal certification preparation and one for independent or Christian school leaders — split for three classes, an internship, and capstone research.
The program will consist of two on-campus intensives (two weeks in June and one week in January) coupled with virtual learning that will allow leaders to remain in their current professional roles while completing course work in one year. Once coursework is complete, the degree will culminate in a capstone research project that addresses an identified problem of practice in the leaders’ current school contexts.
