Siloam Springs Herald Leader - - NEWS - From Staff Re­ports

Arkansas Depart­ment of Education has ap­proved John Brown Univer­sity to of­fer a 33-hour Mas­ter of Education (M.Ed.) de­gree in Ed­u­ca­tional Lead­er­ship P-12 as well as a 24-hour grad­u­ate-level en­dorse­ment.

Launch­ing in spring 2018, this pro­gram will pre­pare stu­dents to move into a school ad­min­is­tra­tor role. Grad­u­ates may be rec­om­mended for Arkansas Build­ing Level Ad­min­is­tra­tor P-12 li­cen­sure af­ter com­plet­ing the re­quired as­sess­ments.

Dr. Jeff Ter­rell, dean of the Col­lege of Education and Hu­man Ser­vices, says the Teacher Education Depart­ment is ex­cited about of­fer­ing this new pro­gram to stu­dents.

“There is al­ways a need for solid ad­min­is­tra­tors in our pub­lic and pri­vate schools, and many teach­ers feel called to mul­ti­ply their ef­forts by mov­ing into lead­er­ship in our school sys­tems,” Dr. Ter­rell said. “This pro­gram pro­vides a qual­ity lo­cal op­tion in a Chris­tian con­text, with the best in both con­tent and ped­a­gogy — all while main­tain­ing flex­i­ble de­liv­ery for work­ing teach­ers.”

The new pro­gram will ex­pand JBU’s grad­u­ate education de­gree of­fer­ings, which in­clude a Mas­ter of Arts in Teach­ing (M.A.T.), Mas­ter of Education (M.Ed.) in Spe­cial Education, Mas­ter of Sci­ence (M.S.) in School Coun­sel­ing and Mas­ter of Arts (M.A.) in Higher Education.
