The MA Degree Program in Collaborative School Leadership
is a graduate education program where prospective school leaders, such
as administrators, counselors, mentor teachers, and special education resource
specialists, would be trained together in a collaborative learning community.
Through common learning experiences, they will develop attitudes, skills,
and knowledge that are essential for school leaders to create collaborative
learning communities in public schools.
The Program consists of two parts: (a) core courses and
(b) elective courses. The core courses are designed to reflect the foundation
tenets of the Program, which underscore the essential characteristics of
effective collaborative school leaders. The elective courses are designed
for candidates to pursue their desired credentials or certificates, such
as Preliminary Administrative Services Credential, Pupil Personnel Services Credential, Professional
Teaching Credential, Special Education Specialist Credential, or National Board
Certificate for Professional Teachers.
