Educational Leadership, Graduate Certificate

Requirements

The Graduate Certificate for Educational Leadership in UVU’s School of Education (SOE) is designed to align with the current Ed Leadership emphasis in the M.Ed. The certificate will meet the needs of candidates who have previously completed a master’s degree (M.Ed) and now wish to prepare as potential administrative and instructional school leaders for Utah’s schools. Curriculum for this option will be based on the standards for administrative/supervisory endorsement from the Utah State Office of Education (USOE), and the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC). The grad certificate program will be formatted to meet the needs of adult learners, with courses offered in the evenings and in blended and online formats, but will not require them to retake core courses previously completed. The administrative/supervisory certificate will prepare leaders for 21st century schools in the areas of curriculum, instruction, and human resource administration. Course objectives will emphasize performance of school and classroom leadership functions, functional knowledge of local, state, and national educational agencies and regulations, demonstrated competencies in administrative skills, and applied understandings of current research around effective teaching, theories of learning, and educational policy. Candidates will be required to complete supervised internship work that is required by Utah code.

Education Graduate Programs

 

Master of Education

Program Description

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree at Utah Valley University is an applied master's degree aimed at building the instructional skill and professional competency of teachers, clinicians  and administrative leaders in K-12 and higher education. The goal is to enable participants to become more proficient in selecting optimum, research-based, curriculum design strategies that best apply to specific teaching situations.

There are currently eleven emphases in the Master of Education Degree:

  • Applied Behavioral Analysis
  • Educational Leadership
  • Educational Technology
  • Elementary Mathematics
  • Elementary STEM
  • English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • Gifted and Talented Education
  • Higher Education Leadership
  • Reading I
  • Secondary Teaching
  • Teacher Leadership

The M.Ed. requires 30-33 semester hours of graduate course work and completion of a culminating applied instructional project tailored to the particular interests of program participants. Participants enter the M.Ed. program in cohorts and progress through the degree program in a group. While the culminating applied instructional project is unique to each student, some course work and many class activities are done in collaboration with fellow students.

Graduate Certificate in Secondary Teaching

The Graduate Certificate in Secondary Teaching is designed for individuals who would like to receive a Utah Secondary Teaching License, and have earned a bachelor’s degree in one of the teaching major subject areas for secondary education approved by the Utah State Board of Education. This program will include the basic coursework and field experiences required of all teacher candidates for an initial teaching license, ensuring that competencies in both subject knowledge and pedagogy are met.  Students completing this certificate may transfer the credits earned in this program toward an emphasis in Secondary Teaching in the Master of Education degree.
