Contact information

Middle Tennessee State University has a long history of providing exceptional preparation for practicing educators who wish to become instructional leaders. The Instructional Leader Programs at MTSU have evolved, responding to the needs of districts and communities. Pathways to licensure are available through the M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision, Ed.S. in Administration and Supervision, and the Ed.D. in Assessment, Learning, and Student Success program (i.e., Assessment, Learning, and School Improvement Concentration). The MTSU pathways to Instructional Leader licensure have established courses and experiences that leverage application of theory and knowledge to real world contexts in diverse local schools. They are aligned to the knowledge and skills defined in the Tennessee Instructional Leadership Standards (TILS), Tennessee Instructional Leader Literacy Standards, and Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL). Faculty across the College of Education, along with currently practicing administrators from local districts, support the learning, growth, and development of candidates through coursework. Furthermore, currently licensed school administrators serve as mentors to candidates as they engage in field work, action research, and/or capstone learning experiences.
