About This Degree

The MEd in Instructional Leadership prepares potential university administrators and K-12 school leaders for Utah's Schools by providing training based on the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS), Utah Education Leadership (UEL) standards of the Utah State Board of Education (USBE), and/or the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC).

The Program combines coursework in leadership and management with specific training in curriculum and instruction to meet the demands placed on today's education leaders. The program includes a focus on assessment at both the school and classroom levels and the effective use of data to drive decisions in schools.

View Potential Careers

Because this program leads to recommendation for higher education/student affairs and/or K-12 professional staff positions, it is primarily designed for people who intend to become administrators in college/university or K-12 school fields (vice presidents, directors, assistant/associate directors, coordinators, staff assistants, principals, vice/assistant principals, superintendents, etc.).

If students are not planning to pursue an administrative career path in the immediate future, the program can still help them enhance their skills and provide them the option of moving into educational administrative positions in the future.
