Educational Leadership: Educational Technology and Learning, M.A. and PASC, Tier I
The Master of Arts in Educational Leadership with an emphasis in Educational Technology and Learning and the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential (PASC), Tier I program is designed to aid school districts by producing graduates with strong technology backgrounds that are or can become effective administrators. This program recognizes the growing demand for individuals that understand the 21st century learner and are able to help school districts integrate new and upcoming tools and strategies.
In this program, students combine theory and practice in a dynamic online environment that provides both flexibility and access to support to working professionals. Students enrolled in the program will work with an experienced faculty, allowing degree candidates to benefit from both their educator's and their own past experiences. APU is a Christian institution; therefore, the material covered in this program and other programs are presented and critiqued through a fully Christian worldview.
Once enrolled in the program, students go through a set sequence of courses that is in the format of five nine-week courses. Each student moves forward with the same cohort of peers with whom they began the program. Though this program provides a large amount of flexibility and there is no set time in which a student must be online, candidates should expect to dedicate six to ten hours per week to discussions and various assignments.
In order to complete this program, students must earn a total of 45 graduate credits. After the one-credit Leadership Induction, most courses typically range from three to six credits in length. Available courses include Policy and Politics of Educational Leadership, Leadership in a Legal Culture, and Evolving Educational Technologies. The final class students are required to take is a five credit Leadership Performance Assessment, in which students identify and analyze their own strengths and limitations.
