The Master of Science in Teacher Leadership is based on a previous degree, but the core courses have been enhanced based on feedback from school district partners.
“This updated degree gives those with leadership aspirations a path to advance into teacher leadership roles,” said Dr. Celya Taylor, dean of Teachers College Henderson. “Teachers can expand their leadership potential beyond the classroom while maintaining their instructional impact and student connections within their own classrooms.”
The teacher leadership degree is built around an updated online core of 18 hours that can be used to obtain the instructional facilitator licensure endorsement and teacher leadership licensure designation.
The remainder of the 30-36 hour degree includes an emphasis area selected by the teacher. Providing even greater flexibility, the degree plan allows teachers to select an interdisciplinary option and create their own emphasis area based upon their leadership goals.

Registration begins in April for summer and fall courses.
