Human Resource Development (M.S.) - Educational Leadership Track

The Educational Leadership Track within the Human Resource Development (HRD) Master of Science program is for certified teachers and other licensed professionals who work in schools and aspire to become educational leaders and administrators at local and state levels. The program is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) for those seeking certification as Administrator I, meeting all required state and national standards. It is the only MSDE-approved interdisciplinary program for Administrator I certification.

The program employs faculty members who have years of experience, as well as faculty with strong research agendas in human resources and education. Many of our faculty members continue to work in the field while sharing their management and leadership experiences with students. Our faculty members are superb advisers and mentors who can help each student develop an individualized program for such positions as human resources generalist; recruiting, or training and development; personnel supervisor; instructional supervisor; or school-based administrator.

If you already hold a master's degree in education there are other options for those who wish to pursue Administrator I certification.
