Secondary Education & School Leadership


From the Department Chair:

As Chair, of the Secondary Education and School Leadership Department (SESL), I wish to welcome you to our very informative website.

The SESL faculty, staff, and myself pride ourselves in fostering the minds of students from all walks of life.  We aim to encourage an atmosphere of promoting conscientious, dedicated leaders upon graduation.

The SESL Department offers various multi-dimensional Master of Arts degrees in Urban Education.  In addition, teacher education is offered to assist in-service and pre-service school practitioners who are interested in acquiring state endorsements and enhancing their professional development.

As you decide upon your Master of Arts in Urban Education concentration, most importantly, I want you to grow and to have a very enjoyable learning experience as you gain more education in your chosen field.
