The Online Leadership Studies program at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville provides opportunities to obtain a Tennessee Instructional Leadership License (ILL) while earning a Masters of Science (MS) or a Specialist in Education (EdS) degree in Educational Administration. The Online Leadership Studies program also offers a one-year certificate program leading to a Tennessee Instructional Leadership endorsement. All courses are delivered online, providing flexibility for aspiring leaders. Aspiring leaders in the program complete an internship under the guidance of a school mentor, such as a school principal, and a facilitator while concurrently maintaining their roles in education. The program is strategically designed to enhance knowledge, skills, and values essential for effective leadership, teaching, and research within educational settings. A significant emphasis is placed on practical experiences, with aspiring leaders engaging in field experiences aligned with school leadership standards. These experiences involve undertaking tasks in real-world educational settings, supported by mentors both within the school and the school district. The primary goal of the Online Leadership program is to ensure that Tennessee school districts have access to highly qualified instructional leaders capable of facilitating optimal learning outcomes for all students.
