Education Leadership program ranked

Henderson State University’s Educational Leadership program has been ranked sixth in the nation for its online Master of Science in Education (MSE) degree focused on building-level leadership.

Educational Leadership Degree Programs evaluated online educational administration and supervision programs listed in the College Navigator database. Program rankings are based upon the size of the program, Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) national recognition, and tuition.

Educational Leadership Degree Programs awarded points based on the performance in each category and then produced a final tally, which was scaled according to a 100-point maximum score.

Henderson State’s online MSE program was ranked alongside Stephen F. Austin State University, Purdue University and the University of North Texas.

“Teachers in our educational leadership courses have the power to redefine what it means to be in class. Whether staying in their own classroom after school, sitting behind their desk at work, or connecting from a home office, teachers can interact with experienced faculty through synchronous course activities, lectures, and student presentations that are delivered using cutting-edge educational technology,” said Teachers College Dean Dr. Celya Taylor.

“A master’s degree in education with a focus in leadership or administration in many states is a required credential for any teacher who wants to move into a supervisory role in a school system. Henderson’s educational leadership graduates are well prepared to be effective school leaders who are capable of solving problems and making decisions for the benefit of all students.”
