Instructional Leadership in Catholic Schools Certificate

Beginning in the Spring 2014 term, the Department of Educational Leadership will offer the Instructional Leadership in Catholic Schools Certificate. This certificate program will focus on coursework that will enhance the ability of students to assist other in curricular and instructional improvement. Specifically, the certificate program will consist of three courses, each worth three semester hours for a total of nine semester hours. The courses will focus on leadership and human interaction (EDA 505), curriculum (EDA 511) and instructional leadership (EDA 510).  

The certificate program will provide students with needed skills and knowledge to fulfill the role of an "instructional coach." Course content included in the program will provide students with the skills, abilities and dispositions to effectively work with peers in order to improve instruction.

The courses are distinctly Catholic in nature. Course material relies heavily on Catholic Church documents, and focuses on applying course material in a Catholic school setting.

There is a four-year time limit for completing the certificate.

Courses required for this certificate may fulfill some of the requirements for the Master's Degree in Educational Leadership with a Catholic School Leadership Concentration if the degree completion meets the 10-year time limit.
