Program Goals

The Master of Education in Leadership in Teaching and Learning offers a unique opportunity to earn a master’s degree while also pursuing an area of emphasis. 

Students complete 18 credits of core coursework plus an additional 18 credits related to the specific area of emphasis, concluding with a capstone experience. To complete an area of emphasis, students will work with their advisor to determine when they will take their graduate-level endorsement or certificate courses.

Credits for the area of emphasis vary slightly, but all Master of Education in Leadership in Teaching and Learning students will complete 36 to 39 credits.

Please note: Endorsements offered at the graduate level are based on the Rule 24 Standards for the State of Nebraska. Nebraska endorsements may or may not be eligible to be added to out-of-state teaching certificates. Teachers seeking to add an endorsement to their out-of-state teaching certificate must consult with their state’s Department of Education to confirm endorsement and certification requirements in their state. 


Midland’s Master of Education in Leadership in Teaching and Learning program is proud to partner with these organizations to promote higher education for teachers and paraprofessionals, providing endorsements and other training opportunities to improve student achievement.
