Master of Education in Educational Leadership (MEEL)

Master of Education in Educational Leadership (MEEL)

The Master of Education is designed to prepare teachers and administrators to become effective educational leaders and practitioners. The program is underpinned by the belief that educated, committed and well-prepared instructional staff and school leaders will help meet the diverse challenges that school systems face in the 21st century. A unique aspect of this program is the contextualization of education issues to the challenges that face educators in Ras Al Khaimah, the UAE and the wider region.

The program allows experienced educational professionals to earn the M.Ed. degree while continuing with their careers. Classes meet in the evenings and weekends to accommodate working educators. The program is part-time and can be completed in two academic years and two summers. The program has two tracks. One is in teaching and learning and is intended for teachers who want to improve their practice and become instructional leaders. The second is in school leadership for teachers and other school personnel who want to continue or advance into administration.
