Educational Leadership Program

A Master of Education in Educational Leadership online is a graduate degree designed for educators who would like to further their career and make a greater impact on their school and their community. Most states require a Master of Education to gain licensure to become a principal, administrator, or counselor, while some even require a Master’s degree to be a classroom teacher.

Earning a Master of Education in Educational Leadership requires dedication to the program, but more importantly, dedication to the field of education. MEd graduates help shape the education industry through advances in technology, curriculum, management, and leadership. The most successful programs offer small class sizes and expert faculty. Online programs are widely accepted in education because they allow educators to stay in their own classroom while obtaining the degree. This also affords the teachers the chance to immediately apply the knowledge and skills they receive from the program.

    Does U.C. offer an online Licensure Program for the principal’s license; for those with a Master’s Degree?

    Hello David – Our Educational Leadership program does lead to principal licensure. Licensure through the Educational Leadership program can happen in one of two ways (it is important to check these often, as state requirements change frequently):

    NCATE* Reciprocity—The Master of Education in Educational Leadership distance learning program is accredited through the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE)*. NCATE is the profession’s mechanism to help establish high quality teacher and administrator preparation and is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a professional accrediting body for colleges and universities. Many states provide licensure based solely on graduation from an NCATE accredited institution. Click here to view NCATE reciprocity.

    State of Ohio Reciprocity— Graduates of the University of Cincinnati Educational Leadership distance learning program are qualified for principal licensure in the state of Ohio. The National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC)** have negotiated licensure reciprocity agreements among states. This means that if you earn licensure in Ohio you may be able to gain licensure in your own state based on proof of a valid Ohio license. NASDTEC (pronounced naz-duh-tek) agreements can be found by clicking here.

    Please note: requirements for licensure can change without notice, so it is important to contact your State Department of Education to confirm reciprocity with your state. The U.S. Department of Education list of state contacts and information can be found here. NCATE also keeps an updated list of personal contacts by state, which may prove useful to you.
