Hood College

April 7, 2020


The Graduate School at Hood College is relaunching its programs in Educational Leadership, Curriculum and Instruction, and Multidisciplinary Studies in Education to make them more flexible and convenient for teachers and other working professionals. The courses will be held in a hybrid model (half online and half on campus) or have flexible meeting schedules. Applications are now being accepted for the summer and fall semesters.

The degree program in Educational Leadership uses sound, practical instruction, extensive self-assessment and real-world K-12 leadership experiences to deliver a comprehensive foundation in the principles and practices of school administration and supervision. Classes are taught by proven public school administrators who speak the language of 21st-century education. The program leads to the Maryland Administrator I and II certifications, meaning that program completers are certified for the range of school leadership roles. Currently, 70 percent of the Educational Leadership program courses are delivered in a hybrid format.

The degree program in Curriculum and Instruction is designed to enrich the certified teacher’s knowledge of research-based teaching and learning in the context of the profession’s shifting landscape. The program offers concentrations in elementary education, secondary education, elementary science and mathematics, and special education. The range of courses focus on best practices, innovative ideas, emerging issues and equity. Hood’s education faculty are professional educators who deliver relevant course content that puts theory into practice.
