SWU to offer fully-online MEDAS program in May
Southern Wesleyan University will soon offer a fully online program to educators who are seeking careers in school or district administration.
Dr. Sandra McLendon, dean of Southern Wesleyan’s School of Education, and Dr. Mona Thornton, associate dean, presented a proposal to the South Carolina Department of Education and received approval. The master’s degree in administration and supervision will be offered in a fully-online format, starting in May.
The master’s degree in administration and supervision allows the student who successful completes the program and attains certification the opportunity to serve in K-12 school settings and districts as supervisors, assistant principals, and principals. Southern Wesleyan University has offered the degree face-to-face since 2011. The new online format will make the degree accessible to students in more remote areas of the state and to educators who have after-school responsibilities.
The School of Education currently offers an online master’s program in Classroom Leadership, as well as an undergraduate Early Childhood and Family Studies program. The university also offers fully online programs in Business Administration (graduate and undergraduate), Human Services and a RN to BSN program.
Southern Wesleyan University is a Christ-centered, student-focused, faith-filled community that offers inventive learning experiences. The university endeavors to prepare its students to be dedicated scholars and servant-leaders who impact the world for Christ. At the same time, it’s Southern Wesleyan’s desire to practice contagious generosity within the surrounding community. For details about degree programs, go online to swu.edu.
