The Educational Leadership program at Lipscomb University is aligned to the Tennessee Instructional Leadership Standards (TILS) and the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL) and includes an explicit focus on character development for educational leaders, business acumen, and conflict management. The Educational Leadership Department collaborates with the College of Business and the Institute for Conflict Management to share content and courses to familiarize aspiring leaders with critical business and conflict management skills. Candidates participate in a competency-based curriculum and engage in authentic learning activities with a school-based mentor and through a job-embedded internship. The mentorship includes scheduled sessions where candidates are coached on topics related to the course content and job shadowing days throughout the program. There are three programmatic paths within the Educational Leadership program, which all lead to the administrative license, including the M.Ed., Ed.S. and Administrative Licensure Programs (ALP). The M.Ed. is a 33-credit-hour program and the Ed.S. is 36 credit hours, while the ALP is 21 credit hours and leads to a certificate in Educational Leadership. Successful completion of all coursework, satisfaction of field experience requirements, and a passing score on the Praxis School Leaders Licensure Assessment (SLLA) are required for graduation.
