Educational Leadership - How to Apply
Educators with at least two years’ work experience in schools, community agencies, or other educational roles or settings are encouraged to apply for the Master’s degree in Educational Leadership. Those with leadership experience or longer teaching experience and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership or related field are encouraged to apply for the Certificate of Advanced Study.
Applications must be submitted online at UMaine Graduate School. Master’s applicants must obtain a sufficient score on either the Graduate Record Examination (1000 combined score) or the Miller Analogies Test (42 score). Applicants must also provide an academic record that demonstrates a solid background in educational studies and solid academic skills (writing, thinking and learning). References and stated goals must demonstrate a commitment to and capacity for leadership that can move schools, universities and other educational agencies forward. In addition to the application, contact Jo Ellen Carr to be considered for the cohort program.
When the decision is made to admit a student, the Dean of the Graduate School sends a letter to the student informing her/him of admission and the name of the assigned faculty advisor. As soon as possible after admission, the student should contact her/his advisor by mail (email) or telephone to schedule a meeting to discuss and develop a “Program of Study.” Also, graduate students need to activate their First Class e-mail account and acquire a MaineCard. The instructions on doing these things are given in the acceptence letter.
