Aurora University announces that the Illinois State Educator Preparation and Licensure Board (SEPLB) approved the 36-semester hour degree program in March 2013. The program is designed for those who wish to become instructional leaders.

The curriculum includes a 24-semester hour required endorsement core and a 12-semester hour block of courses that can be targeted toward each candidate’s area of interest or career goals. Candidates will prepare for leadership positions, including department chair, grade-level leader, dean, curriculum specialist and athletic director.

Areas of emphasis can include:

  • Literacy/Reading Instruction
  • Educational Technology
  • ELL/Bilingual Methods and Strategies
  • Special Education
  • Curriculum Development and Evaluation
  • Organizational Leadership

Candidates who already hold a master’s degree in education may opt to complete the 24-semester hour endorsement only.

We look forward to education candidates and collaborating with districts to prepare future instructional leaders.
