Baylor’s graduate programs for K12 leaders are designed for working professionals who want to serve in leadership roles at public or private educational systems, offering preparation for appropriate certifications.
The MA in School Leadership offers a hybrid learning model and is designed to help educators take their leadership to the next level. The program will launch with two classes in June for 9 days via intensive sessions on Baylor's Waco campus. We will meet for one additional intensive class for 4 days the following June. The remaining courses will use online and asynchronous learning deliveries using Baylor’s learning management system and instructional technology.
The program offers two tracks — one for public educators seeking principal certification in Texas and one for leaders in independent or non-Texas schools.
The Baylor EdD in K-12 Educational Leadership is a cohort-based practitioner-oriented doctoral program for leaders of schools, educational systems, and agencies. Designed for the dedicated working education professional with weekend scheduling, the program prepares highly qualified practitioners to lead K-12 education institutions, while refining skills for executive positions in public, Christian, and private educational systems or agencies.
The EdD curriculum includes a structured clinical experience that fulfills the requirements for Superintendent Certification in Texas.
The P-12 Educational Leadership PhD is research-focused and educates scholars and scholar- practitioners who desire to have meaningful, lasting influence on P-12 education. Students entering the program can expect to be professionally challenged throughout the course sequence. The program is built on the idea that a great doctoral education stems from great mentorship. The program provides flexibility to build a course of study that will serve each student well.
