University of Mary Hardin-Baylor 2013-2014 Graduate Catalog

Educational Administration (M.Ed.)

Dr. Craig Hammonds, Program Director

Purpose of the Program

The Educational Administration programs at UMHB are designed to prepare practitioners to become leaders who lead by example, are driven by a vision of success, and are advocates in shared decision-making. Further, they must become both politically astute, managers of conflict, public servants charged to work with school boards, and are able to respond quickly to a wide-range of issues dealing with diversity, technology, finance, and continuous school improvement for every child.

Both the M.Ed. in Educational Administration and the Superintendent Certification Program employ alternative delivery, cohort and non-cohort models utilizing select Saturday classes during the Fall and Spring semesters with abbreviated summer institutes.
