Do you have what it takes to be an education leader? The Educational Specialist Degree in Instructional Leadership & School Administration is a principal-certification preparation program for educators who already hold a master’s degree in education.
At Bellarmine, you’ll participate in a best-practice, research-based curriculum with practical field experience. With the theme “Educator as Reflective Learner,” our program places high priority on the development of educators ready to lead in an environment of high-stakes accountability and to face the challenges of 21st century schools.
Reflective educators use their knowledge of content, practice and pedagogy; knowledge of the learner; skills in leadership and guiding the change process; and management of educational logistics and facilities to continually evaluate their effectiveness.
Students engage in constant performance-based evaluation through course work and leadership field experiences and are expected to improve their ability to establish and guide their own personal and professional development.
