Instructional Leadership

UM’s Instructional Leadership master’s degree  program is distinguished by a focus on the preparation of those who lead instructionally versus simply manage the school organizationally. While both aspects of school administration are important, today’s schools need leaders who are exemplary teachers, who understand instruction and assessment, and who inspire others to create positive school climates that foster learning. From Alabama school law to personnel and staff management to school climate and curriculum, you’ll be prepared to lead even the best schools to greater heights. Those who complete the master’s degree  are eligible for Class A certification from the state.
