The Master of Education program is a professional preparation program designed to build the leadership capacity of regional public and private schools. A result of years of discussion and planning, the Master of Education program was developed in collaboration with school district personnel and regional advisory groups. After a thorough analysis of local needs, two areas of specialization were identified: Reading Specialist and Educational Leadership.
"The M.Ed. program has provided me a wealth of opportunities to continue my personal pursuit of educational excellence. I was particularly appreciative of the vast experience and accessibility of our instructors, superintendents and educational professionals. The internship experience was second to none and has given me a confidence that is already propelling me towards my vision of becoming an educational leader!"

The members of our full-time faculty have held positions in public and/or private education and continue to be engaged in ongoing consulting with other educators. Most of our adjunct professors are currently working in their chosen fields and, therefore, are a valuable resource to the program. By design, the York College M.Ed. model creates continuous opportunities for collaboration and mentoring.
The Educational Leadership specialization prepares educators for positions of administrative leadership in the public or private school setting leading to Pennsylvania Department of Education Certification as a K-12 Principal. View the curriculum.
