The purpose of the Education Specialist Degree (Ed.S.) in Educational Leadership is to prepare school leaders who will focus on the central issues of teaching and learning and school improvement and who will make a difference as moral agents and sensitive social advocates for the children and communities they serve.

The Education Specialist Degree (Ed.S.) in Educational Leadership is offered along three tracks:

  1. Instructional Leadership (IL), a licensure track designed to prepare school principals and supervisors of instruction Application Document Samples/Examples
  2. Teacher Leadership (TL), a non-licensure track designed for school leaders who desire knowledge of concepts and strategies for school and classroom leadership - Admissions Requirements (.pdf)
  3. Leadership in School Reform (beginning late Jan. 2014) - Admissions Requirements (.pdf)

The degree is based on Union’s conceptual framework of A Teacher-Student Dynamic of Sensitivity, Reflection and Faith. Union University desires to prepare school leaders who are grounded in and committed to excellence in teaching and learning with values based on our Judeo-Christian heritage.
