Principal Bridge to the EdD in Educational Leadership – Program Features
Maryville’s nationally accredited program is recognized throughout the St. Louis region for being a leader in administrator preparation. You’ll enjoy small classes, innovative approaches and plenty of opportunities for professional growth. Personal mentoring through active approaches and an internship make this a master’s degree that truly creates sought-after leaders.
The program’s cohort plan, consisting of 12 to 20 students who advance through classes together, builds a network of trusted colleagues as you proceed through the program. This 18-credit program takes one year to complete (prior to the EdD) by meeting just one night a week.
A field-based internship required by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education takes place in both a summer semester as well as selected, planned experiences throughout the year. Maryville University partners with a number of school districts to arrange internship opportunities.
