This education leadership program focuses on best practices that can be applied immediately in the classroom. This empowers educators at all levels of experience to use research to effect change and improve student learning, while developing the skills needed for professional advancement. And since there is no residency requirement, you can more easily balance your education with your personal and professional commitments. In addition, some of the coursework you complete as part of this post-master’s degree program can apply to a Walden doctoral degree in education, allowing you to earn that degree in less time.
An Education Specialist degree, sometimes referred to as a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (C.A.G.S.), is ideal for educators who want to remain working in the field but who would like to increase their influence and impact on their learning communities.Find information about Walden programs and licensure requirements specific to your state.
