Instructional Leadership in Catholic Schools

Program focuses on coursework that enhances the ability of students to assist other in curricular and instructional improvement. The certificate program consists of three courses, each worth three semester hours (a total of nine semester hours). The courses focus on leadership and human interaction (EDA 505), curriculum (EDA 511) and instructional leadership (EDA 510).  Program provides students with needed skills and knowledge to fulfill the role of an "instructional coach." Course content provides 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 M.S.E., Educational Leadership (optional designated Catholic schools course sections), if the degree completion meets the 10-year time limit.
