Course Sequence

Over the course of three summer sessions and two academic years, Remick Leaders earn a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and may become eligible for school leadership licensure. Our innovative approach blends on-campus summer classes with applied online coursework during the academic year, optimizing the time and energy of practicing educators.

Each summer, Remick Leaders courses in three central leadership domains — Instructional Leadership, Executive Management, and School Culture — that are focused to provide the tools and knowledge necessary to become a transformational leader in their community. During the academic year, this online coursework is geared to put this content into best-practice, as participants apply the skills and knowledge to real life-situations as leaders in their schools.
