Effective Teaching & Leadership Program
Earn a master's degree in a program that is designed to offer you flexibility, individual choice, and the chance to be part of a community of learners. The Master's in Effective Teaching and Leadership (METL) program centers around a core curriculum in which you'll be challenged to engage in research and reflect on your own learning and leadership. Complementing your experiences in the core curriculum courses, you'll also be able to work with your advisor to create a unique plan of study based on your areas of personal and professional interests. The program culminates in a thesis project designed in collaboration with METL faculty. Small class sizes and access to caring and committed faculty ensure that you receive an individualized experience alongside fellow educators who share a passion for their craft. Completion of the METL program will prepare you to continue within your professional setting, provide leadership in your school and profession as a whole, or continue your studies at the doctoral level.
The METL program is based on the College of Education's four core values: the appreciation of diversity and similarity; the excitement of teaching, learning, and mentoring; the challenge of integrated theory, practice, and collaboration; and the strength of integrity and responsibility. We look for students who share these values as they begin their work with us and who seek to strengthen their expression of those values in their teaching and leadership.
