Graduate Studies in Education
Northern New Mexico College is partnering with Adams State University to offer a two-year Master of Arts in Educational Leadership (Initial Principal Licensure) program.
The program is designed to equip qualified and experienced educators with the knowledge and skills necessary to assume leadership positions in schools, particularly the positions of program supervisor/director or building principal/assistant principal.
Studies include: leadership, school management, law and finance. The program emphasizes the role of a school leader as collaborator and creator of a supportive and stimulating environment for children and teachers.
We follow a cohort model limited to 10-12 students to maximize student learning and participation. Part-time assistantships are available.
In 2012, Northern New Mexico College launched its first master's program in Educational Leadership, partnering with its sister College of Education at New Mexico State University. Its mission was to deliver high quality, distance education instruction to northern New Mexico teachers and administrators. The program was funded by Northern New Mexico College's Title V AVANCE Grant, which graduated its first cohort in May 2013. Today, graduates of this first cohort are practicing educational administrators in northern New Mexico’s various school districts.
