School of Education Graduate Programs > Spring 2014 Catalog



The Drake University School of Education prepares world-class teachers and educational leaders. With more than 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students, we are one of the largest schools of education in the Midwest. We have an exceptional record of preparing highly effective elementary and secondary teachers, school counselors, principals, superintendents, and specialists working in training and organizational development in the corporate and nonprofit sectors. At the same time, we don’t let our size compromise our commitment to provide an intimate learning environment that fosters close connections between students and faculty. Although you are always welcome to visit our website or call the school, we are supplying this print version of our spring catalog for additional convenience. Our graduate degree and endorsement classes are offered in the evenings and on weekends in various locations on and off campus or online. This fall we launched a new Master of Science in Leadership Development (MSLD) degree. This program, which replaces the Adult Learning and Organizational Performance (ALOP) degree, is designed to meet the needs of emerging and aspiring leaders who wish to better understand their own leadership strengths, identify areas of development, or expand their leadership capacity within their organizations. Thinking of becoming a building-level administrator? Check out our new North Metro Cohort program. Classes for aspiring principals will begin this spring in Ankeny, followed by summer and fall classes in North Polk and Johnston. On behalf of our student-focused faculty and staff, I welcome you to start or continue your education and begin your transformation at Drake.

Master of Science in Education Leadership Principal Licensure PROGRAM DESCRIPTION Take the next step in your career and lead education into the future. This program prepares teachers for a variety of leadership positions: principal, associate/assistant principal, athletic director, dean of students, curriculum coordinator, or Area Education Agency consultant. Drake’s reputation for quality extends across Iowa, where nearly 70 percent of school districts have at least one administrator with a Drake degree.

As a cohort program, you will take two courses per semester (each course is three weekends). You’ll develop close relationships with faculty members and other students in your classes, which creates a tight network of individuals from which to invite feedback and solicit advice, now and in the future. New: North Metro Cohort Drake is partnering with three school districts in the North Metro area to offer an innovative, responsive, and rigorous master’s degree to prepare future school leaders and build the leadership capacity within each district. Instead of coming to Drake campus for classes, students will take classes on site and rotate (rounds) in each of the three host districts—Ankeny, Johnston, and North Polk. Professors will work with district leaders to create a curriculum that is embedded in the real-life workings of the district. Teachers with at least one year of teaching experience are welcome to apply. Individuals do not need to be from one of the host districts to apply. • Convenient—Six weekends per semester (Saturday 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m./ Sunday 8:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m.) • Cohort based—Built-in networks of other aspiring administrators • Embedded—Local districts will “host” the cohort for various classes • Leadership Rounds—Cohorts will investigate various initiatives, professional development, and projects in the host district.
