The CU Board of Regents approved a proposal that will allow the UCCS College of Education to offer a Master of Arts in Leadership in Education at its June meeting.
Pending final approval by the Colorado Department of Higher Education, the new program will have tracks in leadership for P-12 schools and student affairs in higher education.
The Master of Arts in Leadership in Education emerges from a reorganization of two existing tracks within the College of Education, the Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction and the Master of Arts in Counseling and Human Services.
“Reorganizing these two separate programs into one new program is innovative and will allow the College of Education to continue to build and expand its demonstrated excellence in serving the needs of both students and the community,” said La Vonne Neal, dean, College of Education. “I wish to complement the faculty for their work in developing this proposal.”
The impetus for the change was three-fold.
The new degree will not require any additional resources because the college is able to re-deploy existing resources. Following approval by the CU Regents, the degree must be reviewed by the Colorado Department of Higher Education.
