Cleveland State University's College of Education and Human Services Master of Education with a Specialization in Organizational Leadership is an interdisciplinary program drawing from the Colleges of Business, Science, Urban Affairs, Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Education and Human Services. This innovative masters program was developed by and is under the purview of the Center for Educational Leadership in the College of Education and Human Services. Graduates of this program will be able to make executive decisions as school leaders having learned best leadership practices from other fields. Key areas explored in the program are management and organizational behavior, community and international relations, ethics, local history, school law, school safety, conflict management, and public relations in a school setting.
This program accommodates the working professional by offering coursework online and on weekends, primarily Saturdays. Participants will experience this masters program in a cohort model and complete the 42 credit program in 5 semesters. Graduates pursuing a principal license, who have successfully completed the 42 credit program and who have passed the required Praxis II exam, may be endorsed for principal licensure through Cleveland State University.
The Master of Education in Organizational Leadership is a community focused, job-embedded and school-based program, providing graduates with hands-on school leadership experiences from a local, regional, national, and global perspective. Throughout the program, students will complete a School Leadership Practicum and a Community Partnership Practicum. Students will also be required to complete a Capstone portfolio that will be a compilation of work documenting their field-based research as well as their coursework.
As an additional component of this program, participants will be given the option to travel internationally as a group to collaborate and interact with school leaders abroad. It is increasingly important for school leaders to understand and address the impact of a global society on their school communities and the learning lives of their students. This component is not required for graduation, but is highly encouraged.
