M. Ed. in Ed. Leadership

The Educational Leadership major has as its emphasis in the development and application of leadership knowledge and skills essential for the expanded leadership roles of today's, and tomorrow's, school leaders. Currently, the Educational Leadership & Policy Studies department has two Master of Education in Educational Leadership & L5 Certification cohort groups underway (from the Rabun County and Catoosa County areas) via a combination of GSAMS and online participation. Additional "cohort" groups can be negotiated only if there is sufficient interest from a particular geographical area (a minimum of 12 students). Professional Leadership Certification students could join any cohort group of 12 or more. A request to the department would have to be made by the district and commitment to the entire program made. All M.Ed./ L5 ELPS courses courses are delivered via GSAMS and/or online (using WebCT). Synchronous class meeting are typically offered on Monday- Thursday evenings Monday evenings from 4:30-7:00 & 7:00-9:30pm. For more specific info. please see: contact: Dr. Gus Douvanis -
