The Educational Leadership program is designed around students who work full-time; courses are offered in the evenings and during the summer. The availability of multiple summer courses enables students to complete their program in three or more years, which includes the yearlong internship. By following these three steps, students can plan on completing the program requirements at a pace that meets their professional needs.
Review the Educational Leadership Program Planning Guide. This guide allows you to plan out your coursework on a semester-by-semester basis. If you are enrolled in a cohort program, your sequence of courses is preset and you will automatically be registered for that coursework each semester.
Look up Educational Leadership program requirements in the catalog.
Students should consult with their program director and/or faculty adviser; the program director contact information is located at the bottom of the Educational Leadership home page and students' academic advisers are indicated on their letters of admission. These faculty members can assist in planning a program of study that is based on a student's professional and career goals. All students must consult with their adviser before signing up for any capstone, thesis or independent study-related project.
At the Graduate School at Hood College, students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty who can assist in the pursuit of academic and professional goals. Students are encouraged to get to know their faculty advisers and course professors to make the most of their graduate school experience.
