The Master of Education Department seeks to prepare educators to become skilled school administrators, curriculum specialists, curriculum directors, and highly qualified classroom teachers for public and private schools. Our graduate students experience small classes, highly qualified instructors, and opportunities to interact with peers in a Christian environment. Classes are flexibly scheduled to meet the needs of busy educators who are already active in the fields of private and public education.
Master of Education
Delivery of Instruction
All of the classes are now hybrid in nature which means that most of the class work is submitted electronically during the 8 week course. Because students are enrolled in only one 8 week course at a time, they have time to focus on just that course. The students are required to attend one Saturday face-to-face class for each class which provides students opportunities to interact with their peers, present projects, and participate in a variety of group activities which are an integral part of the master of education degree.
The Master of Education degree is offered in two concentrations:
- The M.Ed. in Educational Leadership degree is a 36-hour program composed of 18 core hours and 18 hours of specialized preparation. In addition, students must submit a professional portfolio that demonstrates their expertise in the Educational Leadership arena. After a student completes all program coursework, passes the Principal TExES exam, and meets all state regulations, the student will be qualified to apply for certification as a principal in Texas.
