About this course

The Leadership degrees at Georgia College offer training in the knowledge, skills, and dispositions required to be an effective leader in our public schools. The programs provide students with strong training in school leadership practice under the direction of highly qualified faculty who have all been school leaders in public school settings. The leadership programs at Georgia College are specifically designed for adult learners seeking to advance their practice from the classroom into the leadership area and are taught part time at our Graduate Education Center in Macon and on the Milledgeville campus. Geared towards working adults, coursework is scheduled Saturdays and online with internship requirements completed in their home districts under the direct supervision of Georgia College faculty.
