Are you a talented and passionate teacher?
Are you ready to step up and lead?
Salem College has been all about teaching and leadership since 1772. 
We are ready for you!

The MEd in Educational Leadership (K-12) is an online program that combines the convenience of distance learning with Salem’s storied warmth and individual attention.  The program will prepare candidates to be effective, ethical school or district leaders who support teachers and learners in dynamic and diverse environments.  Candidates will develop the skills and dispositions needed to supervise and support teachers, evaluate curriculum and assessment data, build a positive school culture and climate, and lead school improvement initiatives.

Educational Leadership students will read widely in current research and examine real-world case studies.  Students will experience interviews, observations and internships across the K-12 spectrum.  And students will work online with cohort colleagues and Salem professors to analyze the challenging educational issues of our time – all on an online platform that meets the needs of busy professionals.

Graduates will be eligible to apply for a North Carolina Level 1 Administrator License and will be prepared for a variety of leadership roles:

  • Principal
  • Assistant Principal
  • Curriculum Facilitator
  • Instructional Coach
  • District Level Administrator

Using a variety of online tools to establish community in a digital classroom setting, Salem College’s Educational Leadership faculty will provide the personalized support and relationship-centered instruction that are Salem’s hallmark.
