New Format for Education Leadership Graduate Program

11.21.2013

HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 21, 2013 – High Point University is offering a new course format for graduate students interested in a M.Ed. Education Leadership degree. Instead of meeting one night a week, the graduate program will adopt an executive weekend format.

Students will meet one weekend a month, Friday night and Saturday, in order to accommodate their demanding work schedules. The program will make the format switch for the spring semester, beginning Jan. 2014.

“This program meets the needs of leaders in our school systems who are often asked to engage with their parents, students and colleagues in the evenings,” says Tracy Collum, associate dean of the Norcross Graduate School. “This new format allows them to continue to meet the needs in their schools while obtaining a degree to further increase their knowledge and skills. It also allows students from a wider geographic area to partake in our graduate programs.”

In addition to their monthly courses, students will do some coursework using online tools including webinars and blackboard.

The Educational Leadership program prepares experienced K-12 teachers to serve as educational leaders in 21st Century Schools. It is intended to relate to the needs of educators in both theory and practice, and is designed for candidates who have a baccalaureate K-12 teaching license with at least three years of successful public or private school experience.

HPU has more than 300 graduates serving as teachers and administrators in Piedmont Triad schools alone.
