WSU’s innovative Master's Degree in Educational Leadership is designed using cohort groups. You begin your program with a cohort who becomes your "learning family" for the next two years. No longer will you attend a set of loosely-related classes which may not seem pertinent to what you do daily as an administrator in "the real world". In this program, you begin work "in the real world" from your very first meeting. From the beginning, you will be working with your mentor (usually your building principal) in assessing your own strengths and weaknesses, and identifying strengths and weaknesses in your school. You will capitalize on these strengths and build on the weaknesses-individually and organizationally-throughout your program.
Students who complete this program and pass the School Leaders Licensure Assessment are eligible for Building Leadership endorsement from KSDE.
