DAYTON, Ohio, Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Dayton School of Education and Health Sciences welcomes current and aspiring educators across the country to apply to its online Master of Science in Education (MSE) in Educational Leadership.

The degree aims to provide educators with the skills and licensure path needed to move into leadership and administrative positions in the education field. It is the first of three degree offerings from the University's suite of online graduate degrees in education and health sciences delivered in partnership with 2U, one of the foremost education technology companies in the U.S.

"The University of Dayton School of Education and Health Sciences educates leaders in education who advance social justice, equality and community. The online MSE will prepare education professionals to become extraordinary leaders ready to take on today's complex challenges in service to their students, their communities and beyond," said Dean Kevin Kelly.

Today's educators face important issues ranging from school finance and funding sources, to the need for school leadership in diverse and dynamic communities, to handling the complicated dynamics of community relations. The MSE in Educational Leadership is designed to provide students the knowledge and training needed to effectively serve in educational leadership roles such as supervision and professional development; community relations; school law; research; and leadership in promoting, understanding and managing diversity in schools.

Graduates of the online MSE in Educational Leadership program may go on to pursue a variety of career positions including school principals, chairs of academic departments, instructional coaches, education researchers, consultants and policy analysts, among others.

The online MSE in Educational Leadership offers two tracks: the MSE in Educational Leadership and the MSE in Educational Leadership and Principal Licensure. The curriculum for both tracks provides a balanced instructional approach that integrates learning and practical application. Students will attend live, weekly online courses taught by School of Education and Health Sciences faculty and engage with interactive course content that will also be available on a mobile platform. The online degree will match the quality and rigor of the university's on-campus offerings.

The degree consists of a 30-credit curriculum. An additional 12-credit hours totaling 42 credits will be required for the MSE in Educational Leadership and Principal Licensure.
