The program is committed to developing school-level leadership for powerful and equitable teaching and learning and to ensuring students meet the state standards for leadership preparation. Most students complete the program in 2-3 years while working. Successful graduates qualify to apply to the Michigan Department of Education for Administrator Certification with Elementary and Secondary Endorsements.
At all three sites, the program accommodates full and part-time students and uses evening and online formats for its courses. The core courses for the degree are offered in a hybrid course format while most elective courses are totally online. Hybrid courses have students meeting face to face four to six times over a semester with the remaining course interactions taking place online. MSU offers faculty and students access to Zoom, an online communication tool that supports synchronous (meeting during scheduled times) online meetings for core instruction and for collaborative group work. Most classes also have components that are completed asynchronously (according to individual student preference).
