Participants enter the M.Ed. program in cohorts and progress through the degree program in a group. While the culminating applied instructional project is unique to each student, some course work and many class activities are done in collaboration with fellow students.

Graduate Certificate in Educational Leadership2020欧洲杯夺冠热门
The Graduate Certificate for Educational Leadership in UVU’s School of Education (SOE) is designed to align with the current Ed Leadership emphasis in the M.Ed. The certificate will meet the needs of candidates who have previously completed a master’s degree (M.Ed) and now wish to prepare as potential administrative and instructional school leaders for Utah’s schools. Curriculum for this option will be based on the standards for administrative/supervisory endorsement from the Utah State Office of Education (USOE), and the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC). The grad certificate program will be formatted to meet the needs of adult learners, with courses offered in the evenings and in blended and online formats, but will not require them to retake core courses previously completed. The administrative/supervisory certificate will prepare leaders for 21st century schools in the areas of curriculum, instruction, and human resource administration. Course objectives will emphasize performance of school and classroom leadership functions, functional knowledge of local, state, and national educational agencies and regulations, demonstrated competencies in administrative skills, and applied understandings of current research around effective teaching, theories of learning, and educational policy. Candidates will be required to complete supervised internship work that is required by Utah code.
