The principal track prepares candidates to meet the WELS principal standards. Leadership courses focus on servant leadership, vision, planning, communication, and relationships. Administration courses develop skills in management, budgeting, school safety, and outreach. Instructional Supervision courses enable the principal to monitor and develop high quality curriculum and instruction. Practical Application is embedded throughout the entire program, but is especially integrated into the research, field project, or internship components.

Pick the electives that match your ministry by reading the course descriptions.
MLC graduate students may select half of their courses from outside their emphasis. The course descriptions will help you know which ones best match your varied responsibilities and interests.
Fit the courses into your schedule according to the course calendar.
The Long-Term Course Calendar lets you see when courses are offered so you can plan to take courses when it’s convenient for you. Complete your program in as little as two years (instruction or leadership), through summers only (leadership), or by spreading it over seven years.
