Are you a passionate teacher who feels called to lead? The University of Washington College of Education proudly offers the Master of Education in Instructional Leadership (MIL).
This unique degree program prepares teachers for emerging and critical leadership positions in school and district settings. This degree serves teachers who want advanced knowledge of leadership and classroom practice, but do not currently aspire to become principals or administrators. Exercising equity-driven leadership, our graduates support and foster the professional development for teachers that can lead to improved student outcomes.
The curriculum blends teacher leadership coursework, content-specific coursework, and inquiry-focused leadership practice based on the 2011 National Standards for Teacher Leadership
. The curriculum draws on the rich knowledge of the UW College of Education faculty as well as notable local expertise. A flexible schedule and hybrid format allows you to earn your degree in two years or less, even if you continue to teach full time.
If you want a professional role that directly aligns the twin goals of equity and excellence in education and also nurtures the growth of fellow educators, the MIL program can offer a transformational experience to you – both personally and professionally.
