The M.Ed. in Educational Leadership with Urban School Specialization is provided by SMU’s Annette Caldwell Simmons School of Education as part of a larger 5 year development track known as the Aspiring Ed-Leaders Program. As part of this program, students will engage in a robust in-school residency that focuses on leadership in action and is offered through a unique partnership between SMU and Teaching Trust, a nonprofit organization devoted to leadership development in urban schools. Program participants will graduate with a Master’s in Educational Leadership with Urban School Specialization from SMU at the end of two years.
