Master of Science in Education

The Master of Science in Education is an online degree program that has the goal of contributing to the professional growth of teachers and encouraging them to be reflective, competent, and dedicated educators of children. It is designed for persons who have an undergraduate degree in education from an accredited college or university. Upon successful completion of the graduate program, students are awarded the Master of Science in Education (M.S.Ed.) degree.

Students in the program choose to focus their studies in one of four areas of emphasis – Instruction, Leadership, Special Education, and Educational Technology. Students may also choose to complete a double emphasis, or to earn a master’s degree and post-baccalearuate licensure simultaneously.

I enjoyed being challenged to think outside the box. I could take what I was learning in my classes and apply strategies to my classroom lessons, watch the students grow and learn from the activities, then report about what changes were occurring in my classroom. The professors were always willing to provide constructive feedback on assignments, essays, and activities which helped me improve my interactions with not only my students but also our school staff and parents.

Master of Science in Educational Administration

The Master of Science in Educational Administration is an online degree program that provides training to meet the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod principal and early childhood director standards. It is designed for persons who have an undergraduate degree in education from an accredited college or university. Upon successful completion of the graduate program, students are awarded the Master of Science degree in Educational Administration (MS Ed Admin).

Students in the program choose to focus their studies in either the principal or early childhood director emphasis.

Early childhood directors encounter different challenges than principals, so when I heard about the new MS-Educational Administration degree with an ECE director emphasis at MLC, the decision to enroll was easy!

I want to fulfill my call as principal to the best of my abilities and to God’s glory. Much of what I learned at MLC has been immediately applicable. As I was taking School Business Administration, I took the discussions we had on promoting our schools and started a marketing plan for my school. We put that plan into practice before the school year was over.
