Attention prospective education graduate students: Blended courses are now scheduled for the Northwest Educational Leadership Programs
Two graduate level courses (a total of six semester credit hours) are scheduled on the same night at one convenient location, on alternating dates.
Each course typically meets for five nights during the semester as scheduled by the faculty. Students will be assigned authentic field experience activities on those nights when classes do not meet.
There is emphasis on the use of technology and field experience to meet full accreditation requirements.
Students will gain benefit through incurring less travel expense and having fewer nights away from home.
When enrolled for six hours or more, students are eligible to apply for financial aid.
The student will spend less time in face-to-face instruction and more time devoted to practice, thereby gaining more authentic leadership experience.
No. It is not required that students enroll in both classes. Students may progress at their own individual pace.
Yes! If desired, this 32 credit semester hour program leads to a Master's degree in Educational Leadership and prepares students for Principal certification.
Most students when continuously enrolled can complete the degree program in two years or less (Note: Must be enrolled in at least six semester credit hours per semester).
The program has the highest NCATE and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education accreditation and has been recognized as "exemplary" by DESE.
