School Leadership - Principal Licensure

TEAM Scholarship

The Teacher Education Access at Miami (TEAM) Scholarship provides a 50% discount on graduate tuition and fees for Ohio PreK-12 Educators.

The School Leadership Program (SLP) leads to the M.Ed. degree and is designed for educators with a minimum of three years of K-12 teaching experience who wish to become school principals or administrators. The 33- hour program structure allows teachers to complete their masters and licensure requirements in two years of part time enrollment while working full time. Most SLP courses are taught by full-time Miami faculty; some are taught by current school leaders, and some courses are offered in a hybrid format—a blend of traditional class sessions and on-line components. 

A distinctive feature of the SLP program is the cohort system. Students are accepted in cohorts, reflecting the department’s vision of educational leadership as a collaborative process. Under the cohort system, a selected group of individuals who aspire to building leadership roles progress together through a designed program, creating networks and mutually supportive practices as they advance through their coursework.

Integral to the program is a one-year internship. Each student identifies a school principal mentor to observe and test the application of theory to a field site. The internship provides professional networks as well as leadership mentors.
